The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (‘FATCA’) is US law which has effect in New Zealand under the Double Tax Agreements (United States of America – FATCA) Order 2014. Our bank is required by law to obtain client information from us. The FATCA information required by the bank from us is information relating to any client holding funds in our trust account that is a US citizen or US tax resident. If that is the case the bank must advise that information to the IRD, which will pass the information to the US Internal Revenue Service. The IRD has the power to compel any person, including our firm to supply such information to it.
In addition to FATCA, New Zealand endorsed the OECD’s Common Reporting Standard (CRS) in 2014. When implemented, the CRS will facilitate the annual cross border automatic annual exchange of information on ‘financial accounts’ between the Competent Authority of each country with which New Zealand enters into a bi-lateral agreement (based on the FATCA Model 1 intergovernmental agreement) to implement CRS. You consent to us providing this information to our bank. This Consent also applies to CRS information we hold.
