Our FACTA practice group consists of specialised lawyers and compliance experts dedicated to helping clients find appropriate solutions to ensure compliance with US FATCA, UK FATCA and similar legal regimes.

We work one-on-one with clients to determine the impact of each type of legislation on their operations in the BVI, Cayman and Cyprus. Additionally we ensure that appropriate compliance measures are taken as we continually monitor new developments in FATCA law.
