She also advises banks, trust companies and financial institutions on the US government’s FATCA and CRS legislation, which directly affects their relationships with US clients and foreign clients with US investments.
Darlene is currently working with a number of banks and trust companies advising on FATCA and CRS matters, compliance and the proper use of US LLC’s by foreign nationals. She is also heavily involved in advising trust companies on appropriate tax structures for foreign nationals investing in the USA and for Americans with offshore structures and investments. She is also instrumental in advising various partnership fund structures on reporting, K-1’s, FATCA and CRS compliance for their investor base.
