Compliance with FATCA Regulations
FOREIGN ACCOUNT TAX COMPLIANCE ACT (FATCA)
The Eastern Caribbean Amalgamated Bank (ECAB) is committed to being fully FATCA compliant. FATCA affects many of ECAB’s customers. To find out more about FATCA (including relevant tax forms and guidance) please visit the following links:
- Notice to Customers
- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
We may be contacting you to request further information or documentation in order to verify your tax status under FATCA. Please note that you may receive more than one request for information if you have multiple relationships with the Bank. It is important that you respond to all requests for tax information even if you believe you have already supplied the requested information. If you have any further queries regarding FATCA or local legislation and your tax position, please contact a tax advisor, as ECAB is unable to provide tax advice.
