Assessment on the final FATCA regulations - 22/01/2013

Please find in this link the alert issued by our US colleagues which includes an assessment of the main modifications on the final FATCA regulations.
The guidance addresses the coordination of the Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs) and the regulations by making it clear that foreign financial institutions (FFIs) in Model 1 jurisdictions will be governed by the laws implemented by their own countries while those in Model 2 jurisdictions will need to follow the regulations.
