|Over the past two years, we have acquired a significant expertise in FATCA. As you may know from our weekly newsletter and live presentations, our general FATCA competence is unsurpassed in the Swiss market. Moreover, we have engaged in work for a variety of clients, allowing us to obtain practical experience in the application of FATCA to large international banks, insurance companies, asset management companies, trust companies and an assortment of other niche areas of the financial sector. In addition to our projects in Switzerland, Deloitte has a global FATCA offering that spans every jurisdiction and business sector affected by FATCA.|
The U.S. released the final FATCA regulations in January and signed an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Switzerland in February. These long-awaited publications finalized the key FATCA obligations for Swiss financial institutions and, therefore, mark the beginning of a final push to implement FATCA compliance programs. Incorporating the final FATCA regulations, relevant intergovernmental agreements and the interactions amongst them all, we designed several different FATCA support packages as set forth in the descriptions above.
