Fatca – Getting to Grips with the Challenge Ahead
The industry breathed a sigh of relief when the deadline for reporting under the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (Fatca) was pushed back to July 1, 2014.

But what’s the requirement in data terms, and what steps should firms be taking now to meet the challenge of the coming 12 months?
