FATCA RO Certifications

The IRS informed on July 19, 2018 that the online FATCA registration portal will be upgraded within the coming weeks.

The ROs will be notified per e-mail once the upgrade is completed. The IRS is advising all FATCA registered entities to log in to the updated portal and update their FATCA classification. The update is made through the selection of the “Certification of Pre-existing Accounts (COPA)” or “Periodic Certification” links on the home page. The certification process will then proceed based on the updated FATCA classification.
