FATCA Responsible Officer Certifications
By 15 December 2018, the first FATCA Responsible Officer (RO) Certifications are due. These mandatory certifications require the RO to examine the FFI’s compliance program in detail and certify to the IRS as to its sufficiency.
The FATCA RO General Store is the RO’s one-stop shop for the materials needed to make all of the upcoming FATCA RO Certifications. Some items are mandatory, such as a written sponsorship agreement, while others are best practices, such as a written record of an FFI’s FATCA Compliance Program. All will save an FFI time and expense versus developing the needed expertise in-house or purchasing external advisory services on the topic.
For more information on this topic, you may visit the IRS website here.
In addition to the materials provided in this RO General Store, we also offer consulting services on the FATCA RO Certifications, as well as on FATCA and CRS generally. For further details, please contact us at: rogeneralstore@
The materials in the menu below were developed as part of our series of FATCA RO Bootcamps, full-day technical and operational seminars conducted in Zurich, Geneva and Bermuda in Spring 2018
