I wonder why I never see such participative initiative from the Eu countries of my new home.
The UK has this at least – I once submitted two responses to the Department for Transport when I was working there a few years back. On the whole though I definitely agree as I can’t recall a similar process in any other EU country that I have lived in. Very jealous of all the referendums that the Swiss get to vote on!

Positive developments for FATCA compliance

The Financial Services Council (Australia), Securities Investment Trust & Consulting Association (Taiwan), and the Hong Kong Investment Funds Association have submitted a joint comment letter with respect to the proposed regulations issued under Chapter 4 (FATCA).

Below is the link to my submission to the Australian Treasury consultation process. I’m publishing this for the first time today due to the Australian Treasury not having published all the consultation submissions (as I think they should have by now).
I’m publishing it in case there is some useful content/arguments that can be recycled into the Canadian submissions you guys are considering. I remember the difficulty in trying to figure out the core arguments to put forward, and the even greater difficulty in articulating the arguments with all the the inherent nuance and complexity of the issues. I wish you all well in taking the fight to the Canadian govt.
Thanks, Just Me, for hightlighting Moby’s submission to the Australian Treasury for that consulation process. It was brilliant — I absolutely used it in my submission to the Canadian government.
Offshore tax amnesty – Australian style:
I also posted that on my drudgery thread. Quite a difference between it and the U.S., eh?
I was hoping you’d find a better spot 😉 thanks
I think that Australia and Canada’s revenue agencies may have a better idea of who they are working for than the IRS does, although that stops short when applied to USPersons living in Australia and Canada, apparently.
