This regulatory compliance and technology event in the MENA region provided in-depth training on the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the OECD Common Reporting Standard (CRS) legal frameworks.
The two day event has been delivered over two days during May 2018, at the InterContinental Regency in Manama, Bahrain.
Rodrigo Zepeda, the Co-Founder of Storm-7 Consulting, expert on the FATCA and the OECD CRS regulatory compliance frameworks, guided delegates through the training programme sessions.
At the end of each day, Pierre Arman, Market Development Lead, Thomson Reuters, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Katherine Lee, Consultant FATCA and CRS, Thomson Reuters, UAE, hosted the technology sessions to showcase their technology solution for FATCA and CRS reporting and documentation.
This structure allowed the delegates to gain a perfect blend between theoretical, operational, practical, and technological insights which have demonstrated to be highly beneficial to them.
