What are the status of a company? The „Constitution“ of a company is defined in the Companies Act 2006 (CA 2006) as: the company`s statutes and all decisions and conventions, the establishment of a businessThe definition of the „Constitution“ 2006 is not exhaustive and the GCGs concluded by the United Kingdom with the Crown Dependencies (and Gibraltar) are totally reciprocal and therefore require national legislation in both the United Kingdom and the Crown to implement the agreements. On 31 March 2014, the implementation rules for the IGA, the International Tax Compliance (Crown Dependencies and Gibraltar) Regulations 2014, came into force for the Uk and the regulations have been amended since then (SI 2015/873). The government (along with France, Germany, Italy and Spain) and the European Commission participated in joint discussions with the US government to explore an intergovernmental approach to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), to support the overall objective of combating tax evasion while reducing risks and burdens on financial institutions. A model intergovernmental agreement (IGA) was developed and published in July 2012. In September 2012, the United Kingdom and the United States signed an IGA – the UK-US Agreement on International Tax Compliance and FATCA Implementation (see „Current Documents“ section below). Schedule II of the IGA was amended by an exchange of notes between the two governments from June 3 to June 7, 2013 (see „Updated Documents“ section below). Details of future agreements will be published on this page. Many other governments, including CDTOs, have entered into or entered into similar agreements with the United States. The United Kingdom has also entered into similar agreements with CDTOs to allow HMRC to inquire about the offshore accounts of UK residents. In accordance with the Taiwan Relations Act, the parties to the agreement are the American Institute in Taiwan and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States. FATCA requires foreign financial institutions (FFIs) to disclose information about the financial accounts of U.S.
taxpayers or foreign companies holding U.S. companies to the IRS.
