Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act
The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is a U.S. law introduced in 2010 and became effective July 1st 2014 to assist the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in detecting and discouraging tax evasion by U.S. taxpayers holding undeclared accounts and investments with foreign financial institutions.
We are committed to being fully FATCA compliant. You can download a copy of all applicable BMS FATCA forms through the links below. Please note that these Forms may be updated from time to time.
Statement of Commitment
BMS conducts its business with integrity and transparency and we are committed to ensure we adhere to all relevant laws and regulations including the UK Criminal Finances Act 2017 for the prevention of the facilitation of tax evasion. We recognise the importance of fostering a positive culture of tax compliance and maintaining the confidence of our clients, markets, business partners and relevant tax authorities.
We do not find acceptable any practice leading to the facilitation of criminal tax evasion, whether directly by our employees, agents, suppliers, contractors, consultants or stakeholders along with their employees or via any other associated person carrying on services for or on our behalf.
We have appropriate and reasonable tax evasion prevention procedures in place to enable us to comply with the requirements of the UK Criminal Finances Act 2017.
We provide training on the requirements of the Criminal Finances Act 2017 to all of our employees and we require our employees to demonstrate the highest standards of honesty at all times.
We undertake due diligence on all our associated persons to help mitigate the risk of facilitation of tax evasion offences and we expect those that we do business with to meet their obligations to register and account for all relevant premium taxes, Para fiscal taxes and other levies that they are responsible for.
We will not work with others who do not share our commitment to preventing the facilitation of tax evasion.
