FATCA delay simply “smoke and mirrors”
Risk.net (26 Oct 2012)


One representative from a major Hong Kong accounting firm notes that recently announced start date delays leave “the timetable for imposing penalties for non-compliance … relatively unchanged.” Another representative from another firm sees the US as only shifting gears: “Charles Kinsley, tax principal at KPMG in Hong Kong, views the delay as a result of the IRS looking to frame agreements at country level, rather than with FFIs.”
