Enacted in 2010 as part of the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-147) (“HIRE Act”), the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is an effort by the IRS to improve reporting compliance of U.S. taxpayers who have foreign financial assets and offshore accounts.

FATCA Essentials brings together in one place all the expert guidance and relevant primary source materials you need to understand the new FATCA reporting rules, determine whether your company or clients are subject to FATCA compliance, and how to comply with the FATCA rules.

FATCA Essentials provides detailed analysis from recognized international tax experts, comprehensive coverage from over a dozen international tax journals, daily coverage of new developments, and a comprehensive collection of primary source materials, all of which combine to streamline your FATCA research.
