Client Alert - Cambodia to Implement FATCA
By Tim Holzer
Cambodia has formally notified the United States that it consents to the inclusion of the Kingdom of Cambodia on the list of jurisdictions, which is maintained by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, to be treated as if they have a FATCA intergovernmental agreement in effect.
Cambodia, on June 30, 2014, advised the United States that the Royal Government of Cambodia intends to take the steps necessary, including working with the United States as necessary, to finalize and sign by December 31, 2014, an Agreement Between the Government of the United States of America and the Royal Government of Cambodia to Improve International Tax Compliance and to Implement FATCA. Cambodia is intending to proceed with Model 1B agreement, including its Annexes.
FATCA is the United States’ Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act.
