  • Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) was passed on March 2010 to prevent tax evasion by US persons holding investments in offshore accounts.  FATCA increases transparency in regards to US persons that may be investing and earning income through non-US institutions.  In addition, FATCA imposes tax withholding where applicable documentation and reporting requirements are not met.
  • VinaWealth is committed to being fully FATCA compliant and has implemented procedures to comply with FATCA requirements.  Registration for a Global Intermediary Identification Number (GIIN) was approved on 3 June 2014 and VinaWealth’s GIIN code is ZDHE8W.00003.ME.704.
  • For the majority of clients FATCA will have minimal impact.  FATCA will only impact account holders that are US citizens, US residents, US entities and any non-US entities with a substantial shareholder (>10%) that is a US citizen or US resident.  VinaWealth may be required to report information1 about you and your account to the appropriate governing authority in Vietnam and/or the US tax authority, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  Please be advised that VinaWealth may request additional information or documentation to determine your status.
