Draft FATCA Certifications

 

The due date for submitting both FATCA certifications (one that relates to an entity’s preexisting accounts (“COPA”) and another that relates to the entity’s compliance with various FATCA requirements (“periodic certification”)) is July 1 following the third full calendar year after the date the entity registered and received a GIIN. The update to the FATCA Registration Portal containing FATCA certifications will not be available prior to July 2018. For entities that have certifications due by July 1, 2018, please note, any Responsible Officer (RO) that is required to certify will have no less than 3 months from deployment of the certifications on the FATCA Registration Portal to submit them. In an effort to assist ROs in preparing to complete the FATCA certifications, the IRS is releasing the draft certification questions.
