Standardized software solutions since 2001
FiTAX is a standard tax-reporting solution built by BearingPoint and evolving since 2001. It covers the QI, EUSD, US FATCA, UK FATCA and CRS/AEOI reporting requirements.
Extensive experience in reporting regulations
One of the main challenges faced by financial institutions is to stay up to date with the ever-changing reporting requirements imposed by the tax authorities, which frequently request evolutions in electronic files and reports. Monitoring and implementing changes both punctually and reliably is increasingly difficult for financial institutions. BearingPoint handles this process and makes sure that FiTAX is regularly updated to always provide its clients with a promptly renewed solution.
This approach has proven to be a cost-effective solution by lightening the burden of reporting for financial institutions, thus allowing them to focus on their core activities.
Close collaboration with a Big 4 firm
Since 2001, BearingPoint has been working closely with a Big 4 firm. It provides assistance with all reporting topics and advice on how to interpret tax laws in order to implement the necessary reports/features.
This initiative is part of how BearingPoint strives to provide real value-adding, high-quality reporting software.
FiTAX FATCA Module covers the FATCA reporting:
One of the key differentiators of FiTAX FATCA is our commitment to provide the reportings required by the IRS within final regulations for FATCA but also largely cover the reporting required under the two types of Inter-Governmental Agreements (IGA) – model 1 and model 2.
Thanks to our strong experience in dealing with the IRS and tax authorities of many countries, we will include future changes in reporting requirements for potential new countries under IGAs.
Scalability for global deployment
FiTAX is scalable to serve global financial institutions as well as local entities. An increasing number of financial institutions are applying a hub-based implementation of FiTAX. It means that most entities report centrally, while others do so locally in each entity. FiTAX supports both approaches.
