Foreign individuals maintaining relationships with U.S. banks can be divided into two categories: resident aliens and nonresident aliens (NRA). An NRA is a non-U.S. citizen who is not a lawful, permanent resident of the U.S. during the calendar year, and who does not meet the substantial presence test, or has not been issued an alien registration receipt card (also known as a green card).
Although NRAs are not permanent residents, they often have a legitimate need to open deposit accounts at U.S. financial institutions. The amount of NRA deposits in the U.S. banking system has been estimated to range from hundreds of billions of dollars to about $1 trillion.
How can you open and maintain deposit accounts for nonresident aliens and maintain IRS and BSA compliance? This webinar will examine the impact of FATCA, the required forms, and the acceptable forms of identification for deposit accounts. It will also address related Bank Secrecy Act issues, including CIP and due diligence requirements.
