Limited Branch

Indicate whether each branch listed is a limited branch.

A limited branch means a branch that, under the laws of the jurisdiction in which it is located, is unable to: (1) report, close, or transfer its U.S. accounts to a USFI, to a branch of the FFI that will report the U.S. account, to a PFFI, or to a reporting FI under a Model 1 IGA, or (2) withhold, block, or close an account held by a recalcitrant account holder or nonparticipating FFI or otherwise transfer the account to a USFI, to a branch of the FFI that will report the account to the IRS, to a PFFI, or to a reporting FI under a Model 1 IGA. A limited branch also includes a related branch under a Model 1 or 2 IGA that is treated as a nonparticipating FFI branch because it operates in a jurisdiction that prevents such branch from fulfilling the requirements of a PFFI or deemed-compliant FFI.
