This timely conference is being held shortly after publication of the UK Government’s enabling legislation for the UK FATCA Intergovernmental Agreement and HMRC’s guidance on operational and technical compliance with the legislation. By 22nd January, it is also anticipated that the U.S. Government will have published the final FATCA regulations.
The expert speaker panel at this event will analyse this legislative landscape in detail and will then move on to consider how organisations can comply fully while (a) minimising costs and (b) minimising the impact on clients. Best practice compliance will be examined from a variety of perspectives including how to “future-proof” your FATCA compliance project; ensuring that the system changes that you make now are fully adaptable to cope with future developments; due diligence obligations and their implications for AML/KYC processes; reporting obligations and EU privacy laws; and documentation and internal audit. A further session will examine client communications and relationship management, including complaints and disputes.
We are delighted that Malcolm White, Policy & Technical Adviser, FATCA Policy Lead, HMRC is delivering the keynote address at the conference.
Attendance at this highly topical event will be very useful for all financial institutions that fall within the ambit of the FATCA requirements in the UK.
