FATCA XML Schema Entry Point in XML Authority


The United States Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is intended to detect and deter the evasion of US tax by US persons holding money outside the US. Financial Institutions will need to report the following information on their US accounts:

  • The name, address, account number and TIN of each account holder which is a specified US Person or, in the case of Passive entity accounts, the substantial US owners;
  • The account balance or value at year-end; and
  • Gross dividends, interest and other income paid or credited to the account.
  • The aggregate number and aggregate value of account held by recalcitrant account holders at the end of the calendar year grouped as those that have US indicia, those that do not and those that are dormant.
