Webinar: Is FATCA About Protecting the US Tax Base or Expanding It?
We're excited to announce our next webinar in our series of events dedicated to US taxation.
On Wednesday, November 20th at 12:00 pm London time (GMT), we'll discuss an old friend of ours and one of our favorite topics: FATCA.
One of the main issues when discussing FATCA has to do with the sort of influence it has had on the US tax base. Questions that come up frequently include: Has it expanded the US tax base? Or is FATCA simply looking to protect it?
There are plenty of opinions and perspectives on this subject, particularly coming from the so-called "Accidental Americans" and other US citizens and residents living outside the US.
Hope you can join us for what will be another spirited chat between two of Taxlinked's favorite panelists.
Submit Your Questions on FATCA
As part of this event, we'll discuss plenty of questions including:
- What effect has FATCA had on the US tax base?
- Has FATCA expanded the tax base or is it simply a tool to protect it?
- How is FATCA perceived by 'Accidental Americans' and other US citizens living abroad?
- How would you compare CRS' effect on other countries' tax base versus that of FATCA on the US?
- As a European bank, how can you reconcile your obligations under FATCA with those under the newly established GDPR?
- And plenty more!
As usual, our panelists are eagerly waiting for your questions, so if you don't see yours in the list above, please make sure to submit them below.
