Luxembourg signed a FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) Model 1 IGA with the Unites States for the exchange of tax information.


The Luxembourg government set up with the IGA a legal framework compelling all Luxembourg Financial Institutions to comply with a set of due diligence, withholding and reporting requirements.

Pursuant to the agreement, FATCA rules apply to all Luxemburg financial and non-financial entities. This is irrespective of whether they have US investors or no US investors, whether they have US or only non-US investments.
