Have you received a FATCA letter or been warned of the consequences of being a U.S. person?
New this year in the U.S. assault on people and countries outside its borders, is the “second wave” of reporting – the “entity” reporting. This is nothing less than every financial entity – any corporation, non-profit corporation, your Canadian controlled-private corporation (CCPC), any fund with shareholders-is fair game for an associated financial lender, bank etc to ask:
“Who are your clients, shareholders? Are they, or have they ever been, U.S. citizens?”
If so, they need to fill out a US tax form. (W8-no withholding for non-US taxpayers or W9-for withholding on US taxpayers) to be kept on file with the bank.
My financial advisor indicated he now realized I had not exaggerated the extent of this U.S. interference in Canada. He now has to ask each and every new client, regardless of what they are buying,
“Are you, or have you ever been, a U.S. citizen?”
