FATCA forces financial entities to comply with reporting requirements set out by the US government
. They have to do so when dealing with US citizens. Imagine, ABCDEU insurance
company has 10001 clients, and only 1 is a US citizen. Covering that single
client requires disclosing mammoth amounts of paperwork at specified intervals, in specified formats. Many companies, rightly so, want no part of it. I know first hand about FATCA and the onerous requirements and have to comply with it annually. "Land of the free...." don't get me started.
The only poster on this thread that has referred to crew insurance is you. This thread is about boat
and third party liability insurance.
