    There are a number of substantial changes being made by financial regulators, governments and banks to ensure the protection and long-term safety of both the financial system and our customers’ interests. One of these regulations is the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) effective from 1 July 2014. This legislation administered by the United States Government encourages better tax compliance by preventing US Persons from using non-US financial organisations and foreign entities to avoid US taxation on their income and assets.
