Rendering Unto Caesar: FATCA and US Tax Prosecutions Come to Singapore

January 06, 2016

The world is getting smaller, and the regulatory landscape is changing. The global implications of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and enforcement by the United States is reaching Singapore’s shores.

Please join us in examining some of the current trends relating to US authorities’ global prosecution of tax offenders, the implications on financial institutions and asset managers, and the practical issues on the various exchange of information mechanisms and requirements.

We will be examining these issues from the US prosecution perspective, as well as risk exposure and liability under various Singapore legislations—including Singapore's Anti-Money Laundering Legislation.
