Mastering FATCA Compliance and Implementation for NFFEs

Beginning July 1, 2014, U.S. taxpayers that make payments to foreign persons are required to analyze and report information regarding payments both to foreign financial institutions and non-financial foreign entities (NFFEs) under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), which was adopted as part of the HIRE Act of 2010. To date, the impact of these rules on foreign financial institutions has been widely discussed, but the rule’s broad impact on NFFEs has received less attention.

The FATCA provisions—Chapter 4 of the Code (§§ 1471 et. seq.)— may require 30% withholding on “withholdable payments” to foreign entities that have not provided an appropriate withholding certificate (such as Form W-8 or W-9) or other acceptable documentation.

Withholdable payments include payments of U.S. source FDAP income (basically, all gross income other than income from the sale of goods), and in 2017, gross proceeds from the sale or disposition of assets that produce or can produce U.S. source interest or dividend income.

However, there are broad carveouts that apply to many payments made by NFFEs, including interest and OID on short-term obligations and payments for the following: the use of property, office and equipment leases, services (including wages and other forms of employee compensation), software licenses, freight, transportation, and interest on outstanding accounts payable arising from the acquisition of goods and services.

The withholding tax may apply whether the foreign entity receives the payments as beneficial owner or as agent for a client and whether the beneficial owner is a U.S. or foreign person. The withholding tax applies to many items not otherwise subject to FDAP withholding (e.g., portfolio interest and capital gains of foreign investors) and cannot be reduced or eliminated by treaty.

Listen as our panel of tax specialists explains the impact of the FATCA rules on NFFEs and drills down into the details that tax advisors to NFFEs need to know.

  • How does recovery of and crediting of Chapter 4 withholding by foreign payees work?
  • What are the penalties for failure to withhold?
  • What steps should withholding agents take to implement an effective Chapter 4 compliance program?
