Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)

FATCA is a United Sates legislation, the purpose of which is to improve compliance of U.S. taxpayers who have foreign financial assets and offshore accounts. The intent behind it is to keep US persons from hiding income and assets overseas.
I&C is fully FATCA Compliant.

Common Reporting Standards (CRS)

CRS was introduced by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in order to combat tax evasion and improve cross-border tax compliance. It is a global standard for the automatic exchange of financial account information between jurisdictions that have agreed to adopt it.

Lebanon has adopted CRS and FFA is fully compliant with it.
