Byrnes and Perryman’s Analysis of the FATCA GIIN Lists June 2014 – February 2015 | Kluwer International Tax Blog.
Since the publication of the U.S. Treasury’s original GIIN list 1 June 2014, HaydonPerryman (FATCA systems designer for several tier 1 financial institutions) and I (primary author, Lexis Guide to FATCA Compliance) have been analyzing on a monthly basis the list that the USA provides of “approved FFIs” (foreign financial institutions). On 1 February, the IRS published its second 2015 FATCA GIIN list of “approved FFIs” (a list of the financial firms that have registered on the IRS FATCA portal). Global FFI Registration has reached 153,797.
- But from what countries are these registrations?
- Are these DCFFI registrations or PFFIs?
- Which countries are leading in the registration compliance and which are lagging?
- Has FFI registration growth by country and region been measured over the past eight months?
