With the maturity of FATCA and CRS regimes, withholding agents continue to face a variety of challenges to ensure ongoing compliance as these regimes mature.  With FATCA, there are challenges of ensuring certification of internal controls and elements of the regime which will begin appearing during audits of US withholding agents.  With CRS, there are the growing pains of developmental challenges as the regime continues to be implemented country-by country and the application of the mandatory disclosure rules. This panel will discuss the latest updates, compliance challenges and audit best practices.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) is the most significant overhaul of the US tax code in more than 30 years, effectively lowering business and individual tax rates and modernizing the US international tax rules. There are a variety of provisions in the TCJA that are expected to be particularly impactful to withholding and information reporting. Understanding these provisions and related challenges in 2018 and beyond will be discussed in detail by the panelists.
