Qualified Intermediary & US 1441 NRA Regulations


All financial institutions outside the USA receiving US source income for clients are affected by the US 1441 NRA regulations.  Penalties for non-compliance are severe.  Most institutions have become Qualified Intermediaries (QIs) to minimise the impact and to comply.  This can involve 'audits of compliance'.


This one-day course reviews the issues and regulations and their impact on non-US financial services companies.
