Course Description

The government crackdown on foreign accounts over the past several years has created uncertainty about taxation and compliance. This program sheds some lights on the topic. It provides an overview of foreign financial accounts, private banking in Switzerland, investments, asset protection, client responsibilities, and FATCA, (the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act). It presents a thorough discussion of tax reporting and compliance, penalties for non-disclosure, and options available for remedying non-compliance. In addition, the presenters discuss tax preparation for foreign transactions, distinguishing between U.S. and non-U.S. persons for tax purposes, Nexus, disclosure and more.
