The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) requires that foreign financial institutions and certain other non-financial foreign entities report on the foreign assets held by U.S. account holders or be subject to withholding on eligible payments.
FATCA IRS Reporting requires that an identity-based digital certificate must be used when filing the required reports. FATCA accepts an Organization Certificate or a TLS/SSL Server Certificate.
Use TrustID digital certificates to sign contracts and operational documents
FATCA/IDES accepts both types of IdenTrust FATCA certificates depending on the way that your reports are submitted to the IRS.
When submitting FATCA reports via a web-based interface, the International Data Exchange Service (IDES) is used. IDES is an electronic delivery point where Financial Institutions (FI) and Host Country Tax Authorities (HCTA) can transmit and exchange FATCA data with the United States and transmit FATCA data directly to the IRS.
