Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act
Under the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), financial institutions around the world must provide the US Internal Revenue Service with relevant information about customers who are US persons. Under an agreement New Zealand signed with the United States, and amendments to the Tax Administration Act, New Zealand banks must now collect information to determine whether a customer is a US person and disclose required information to the Inland Revenue. Inland Revenue collates this information and passes it on to the US Internal Revenue Service.
The US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has registered Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZBGL) and its related entities, including ANZ Bank New Zealand Limited, and issued Global Intermediary Identification Numbers (GIINs) to show we comply with FATCA.
