4th FATCA Compliance Forum

Solutions to Manage Your Obligations Under the IGA

Wednesday, March 25 to Thursday, March 26, 2015
One King West, Toronto, Ontario

Keep up with the rapidly evolving FATCA regime. Attend our premier industry conference for all you need to know to stay compliant with Canada’s IGA and related guidance and to safely navigate through the global FATCA maze.

Whether you are an investment executive, counsel or compliance personnel, The Canadian Institute’s 4th FATCA Compliance Forum offers outstanding speakers and guidance on the key areas affecting your firm under the far-reaching FATCA regime.

As the reality of the rules sink in, grey areas remain in interpreting and operationalizing the IGA legislation. The allocation of due diligence responsibilities for dealers and fund distributors can be unclear when multiple people are responsible for the account – who is ultimately liable under FATCA? Gain practical advice that you can implement right away at your financial institution.

This event provides the guidance you need for correctly determining U.S. indicia during account review and identification. Gain clarification on who is a U.S. person – provisions relevant to Snowbirds, students and others who may spend significant amounts of time in the U.S. Find out how to avoid reputational and financial risks for incorrect identification and hear about the different entity classifications for the purposes of FATCA, from securitization vehicles to trusts.

We will also be exploring global FATCA with a look at how to set-up effective compliance approaches across multinational groups where standards may differ across jurisdictions. Are you aware of the Common Reporting Standard introduced by the OECD? This session is not one to miss – the CRA and leading subject-matter-experts will be sharing the latest details on this new, global information collection regime.

Prior to the conference, The Fundamentals of FATCA workshop offers a chance for you and your colleagues to get up to speed on this legislation and the related guidance.
