Using the new FATCA registration website: FAQs for financial institutions
The US Internal Revenue Service has opened the FATCA registration website as of 19 August 2013. This web-based system enables financial institutions to register themselves and their branches, if any, electronically from anywhere in the world without the need to print, complete and mail paper forms.
Financial institutions worldwide can begin to enter their registration information and use the remainder of 2013 to become familiar with the website. Starting in January 2014, financial institutions will be expected to finalise their registration information. As registrations are approved in 2014, registering financial institutions will receive a notice of their registration acceptance and will be issued a Global Intermediary Identification Number (GIIN).
For your guidance, DLA Piper has prepared a series of frequently asked questions (FAQs) to explain the basics of the website. The FAQs use the terminology and illustrate the guidance contained in the FATCA Online Registration User Guide…
