BearingPoint developed the FiTAX UK FATCA module to cover all the reporting needs required under CDOT agreements, including Alternative Reporting Regime (ARR) for UK Resident Non-Domiciled individuals (RNDs).
Following the US FATCA model, British Crown Dependencies (Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man) and Overseas Territories (Anguilla, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat and the Turks and Caicos Islands) entered into Inter-Governmental Agreements with Her Majesty Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and provide information relating to accounts of clients. Those agreements include information that must be sent from and to the UK under the UK FATCA.
FiTAX UK FATCA helps financial institutions to comply with UK CDOT regulation regime: regulations based on residence, Alternative Reporting Regime for UK Resident Non Domiciled individuals (RNDs), reciprocal/non-reciprocal agreements with CDOT.
FiTAX UK FATCA (since 2015): HMRC reporting for UK FIs.
FiTAX UK FATCA helps its users to cover both the UK FATCA reporting requirements in accordance with the IGA signed with the HMRC and the ARR. Despite of different functionalities imposed by jurisdictions, FiTAX platform remains the same for all jurisdictions.
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.
One of the key differentiators of FiTAX UK FATCA is our commitment to provide the reporting required by the HRMC under the Inter-Governmental Agreements between CDOT and HMRC, but also the Alternative Reporting Regime (ARR).
Thanks to our strong experience in dealing with the tax authorities of many countries (more than 85 countries), we include future changes in the reporting requirements.
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.
All FiTAX modules share the same user interface named Helios and offer advanced key features:
Each FiTAX module provides many powerful features, such as:
