ARLINGTON, Va., June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA today released a new Tax Management Portfolio, FATCA — Information Reporting and Withholding Under Chapter 4, in which distinguished international tax practitioners at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP analyze the reporting and withholding requirements imposed by FATCA on both financial and non-financial institutions. The Portfolio examines the historical context of the law and its objectives with an in-depth analysis of the obligations and requirements imposed on businesses around the world. The Portfolio has been made available to all subscribers to the Bloomberg BNA Premier International Tax Library, the Foreign Income Portfolio Series and Bloomberg Law.
"FATCA is one of the most important and challenging tax issues facing businesses today and our subscribers can count on us to provide timely, thorough, and insightful coverage and in-depth analysis," said George Farrah, Bloomberg BNA Tax & Accounting Executive Editor. "We've expanded coverage by releasing this new Tax Management Portfolio written by expert FATCA practitioners at PwC and our subscribers will benefit by having a resource that brings together the knowledge they need about FATCA — from a basic understanding and background to an in-depth analysis of FATCA's application and impact."
The Portfolio provides insights on the documentation, reporting and withholding requirements of FATCA and also reviews the impacts on several key industries.
