Operational tax news - Qualified intermediary regime update - 20 January 2011
Qualified intermediary update training
Should your institution sign a Qualified Intermediary Withholding Agreement (“QI Agreement”) or a Renewal Instrument with the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), your organisation should know that your staff may be interviewed in order to determine its level of knowledge of the QI regime and the basics of the US tax laws behind the regime as part of the QI external audit required under the QI Agreement.
Are your employees ready for that interview?
Whether you are new to the regime or have experience and are looking for a refresher, we can help. In addition, in the specific context of the introduction of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”), an update of the current obligations under the QI program will be a good opportunity to understand to what extent FATCA may impact your business.
Our operational tax team members not only have extensive experience in Qualified Intermediary regime, but their significant experience in the practical application of the regime allows them to custom their training sessions to the specific practical needs of each institution’s employees.
Do not miss this opportunity to reduce QI external audit risks and minimize unnecessary hiccups in the QI process by keeping the knowledge your personnel up-to-date.
