In 2010 the United States Congress passed the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”), part of the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act.  This piece of US legislation requires all foreign financial institutions operating outside the United States, regardless of jurisdiction, to make a determination of any United States customers, whether individuals or entities, and report these customers to the appropriate reporting authority. Global Fidelity Bank, Ltd., as a Cayman incorporated and regulated bank, will adhere to the requirements outlined in the Model 1 Inter-Governmental Agreement signed by the Cayman Islands Government and the United States Government on 29 November 2013. In order to meet these requirements Global Fidelity Bank will require all clients to provide completed self certifications in addition to relevant due diligence documentation.
