The Malaysia-United States (US) Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) was signed on 21 July 2021 to improve tax transparency and to implement the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), where the relevant legislations were gazetted on 1 September 2022. In addition, the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) was developed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to put a global model of automatic exchange of information into practice for the purpose of tax compliance. All Malaysian financial institutions (FI) including asset managers (MYFIs) are required to provide information on relevant customers to the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (IRBM), where applicable, to comply with the requirements. Given the complexities of FATCA and CRS requirements from onboarding customers to annual reporting obligations, it is crucial for MYFIs to ensure the relevant requirements are complied with by the fast-approaching deadline of 30 June 2023.

This seminar will examine the FATCA requirements and CRS legislations, including due diligence requirements for onboarding new customers/account openings, existing individual/entity accounts and addressing changes in circumstances (CIC) as well as the impact of non-compliance of said requirements. MYFIs’ annual reporting obligations to the tax authorities and key concerns on product classification exercise to determine in-scope and out-of-scope products for FATCA and CRS purposes will also be reviewed. Other topics that will be assessed include common FATCA group registrations for funds as single FI or a sponsored entity, and impact of foreign FI/expanded affiliated group structure changes and the relevant steps to address such changes. Issues on certification of pre-existing accounts (COPA) and period certification requirements of a FI group which has branches/ entities in non-IGA or Model 2 IGA countries will also be evaluated.
