In the landscape of global finance, transparency and adherence to international regulations are more than just legal requirements; they are cornerstones of trust and security. At PAA CAPITAL (PTY) LTD, we are proud to uphold these principles, particularly through our compliance with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). This blog post explains what FATCA is, the importance of the Global Intermediary Identification Number (GIIN), and what our compliance means for you.

What is FATCA?

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) was enacted by the United States in 2010 to combat tax evasion by U.S. persons utilizing non-U.S. financial institutions and offshore investment instruments. The primary goal is to enforce reporting of foreign financial assets held by U.S. taxpayers or foreign entities in which U.S. taxpayers hold a substantial ownership interest.

Our GIIN and FATCA Compliance

A Global Intermediary Identification Number (GIIN) is not just a number—it is a testament to an institution’s commitment to global compliance. A GIIN is assigned to financial institutions by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after successfully registering with the FATCA program, which PAA CAPITAL has diligently completed. Our GIIN, FL7N3P.99999.SL.072, signifies our secure and recognized status as a compliant foreign financial institution.

How We Achieved Compliance

Achieving compliance involved a meticulous process of registering with the IRS, which allowed us to obtain our GIIN. This process included:

  • Thorough Documentation: Gathering and preparing detailed documentation about our financial operations and client relations.
  • Rigorous Verification: Undergoing verification processes to ensure all the information provided was accurate and comprehensive.
  • Continuous Monitoring: Establishing systems for ongoing monitoring and reporting of account holders’ information as required under FATCA regulations.

Why Compliance Matters For You

For our clients, PAA CAPITAL’s compliance with FATCA means:

  • Security and Transparency: Engaging with a fully compliant institution ensures that your financial assets are managed in accordance with international laws, offering you complete transparency and security.
  • Prevention of Legal Issues: Compliance mitigates potential legal complications that might arise from non-compliance with tax laws, ensuring smoother, more reliable financial operations.
  • Enhanced Trust: By adhering to these regulations, PAA CAPITAL demonstrates reliability and commitment to upholding international financial standards, which enhances client trust.


At PAA CAPITAL (PTY) LTD, we view our compliance with FATCA, evidenced by our GIIN, as more than just a legal necessity—it is a commitment to our clients’ security and a testament to our integrity as your trusted financial partner. We continue to monitor and adapt to international financial regulations to maintain this status, ensuring that our clients’ interests always come first.
