Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act ("FATCA")


​FATCA is one of many potential withholding responsibilities to consider before distributing cash to a non-U.S. entity. To avoid withholding 30% on the payment of fixed types of income, such as interest and dividends, the payer must properly document the FATCA status of the recipient. We analyze and document whether a payment is subject to FATCA, whether the recipient falls under the definition of a foreign financial institution (“FFI”) or other designation, and finally whether an exception to withholding applies. For more information please see Rödl Tax Matters.
