Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act

The U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) requires certain foreign financial institutions to provide information to the United States Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) or other local regulatory bodies (for example, the ATO), about certain accounts held (directly or indirectly) by U.S. taxpayers or associated entities.

In accordance with these obligations several Suncorp Group entities have been registered with the IRS and have received Global Intermediary Identification Numbers (“GIINs”). These GIINs appear on the published Foreign Financial Institution list on the IRS website.

The table below sets out the various Suncorp entities that have been registered with the IRS.
