This course is an introductory level course for which the target audience is compliance officers, the staff of law enforcement agencies, risk management professionals, policymakers, regulators, consultants, auditors, accounting and control officers, and senior practitioners.


The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (2010), despite being US law, imposes comprehensive regulatory and compliance requirements on a wide range of institutions globally. The Act was enacted by the US Congress in 2010 to combat tax evasion by US taxpayers who hold investments in offshore accounts. It has been estimated that the US Treasury loses approximately $100 billion each year to international tax-dodging schemes. However, the FATCA 2010 is not only applicable to US financial institutions but affects a wide range of other bodies, financial and non-financial, US and non-US, imposing a number of compliance obligations. This makes it imperative for the relevant staff of these institutions to understand the requirements under the FATCA so as to ensure that compliance can be achieved and maintained.

This course will enable its participants to gain a detailed understanding of the FATCA 2010 so as to ensure effective compliance and also to identify the key requirements and risks facing their institution.
