FFI List Schema and Test Files

About the FFI List

Under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), withholding agents must withhold tax on certain payments to foreign financial institutions (FFIs) that do not agree to report certain information to the IRS about their U.S. accounts or accounts of certain foreign entities with substantial U.S. owners.  A registered FFI to which we’ve issued a global intermediary identification number (GIIN) will appear on a monthly published FFI list.  

To learn more about the FFI List and coordination, including withholding, reporting, and FATCA registration, please review the information on FATCA compliance, International Data Exchange Service, and FATCA Registration.
