Uk Iga Agreement
In accordance with the Taiwan Relations Act, the parties to the agreement are the American Institute in Taiwan and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States. Details of future agreements will be published on this page. The government (along with France, Germany, Italy and Spain) and the European Commission participated in joint discussions with the US government to explore an intergovernmental approach to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), to support the overall objective of combating tax evasion while reducing risks and burdens on financial institutions. A model intergovernmental agreement (IGA) was developed and published in July 2012. In September 2012, the United Kingdom and the United States signed an IGA – the UK-US Agreement on International Tax Compliance and FATCA Implementation (see “Current Documents” section below). Schedule II of the IGA was amended by an exchange of notes between the two governments from June 3 to June 7, 2013 (see “Updated Documents” section below). On the FATCA model (and therefore called “UK FATCA” by many), the British Chancellor of the Exchequer announced in the 2013 budget an increase in the automatic exchange of information with Crown Dependencies as part of a wider package of tax measures. The package agreed with the United Kingdom contains a comprehensive overview of the application of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) to UK (UK) lending contracts. FATCA requires foreign financial institutions (FFIs) to report information to the IRS on the financial accounts of U.S.
taxpayers or foreign companies in which U.S. taxpayers hold a significant stake. FFI are invited to either register directly with the IRS to comply with FATCA rules (and, if applicable, FFI agreements), or to comply with FATCA agreements (IGA), which are considered effective in their legal systems. Information on fatca rules and administrative guidelines for FATCA and information on taxpayer obligations can be found on the INTERNAL Revenue Service`s FATCA page.

On 31 March 2014, the implementation rules for the IGA, the International Tax Compliance (Crown Dependencies and Gibraltar) Regulations 2014, came into force for the Uk and the regulations have been amended since then (SI 2015/873).
