Erol Mustafa, a partner in Ernst & Young's information technology risk and assurance practice, discusses the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act.
The US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (Fatca) has attracted at least as much comment, criticism and controversy as any other recent piece of legislation.
