The ITA wishes to inform FI’s that the BVIFARs portal updates have been completed with respect to the “ISSUED BY” option in special circumstances where a TIN is not available.

FI’s with FATCA reporting obligations can now access the Portal and report accounts for an account holder that is not assigned a TIN, but the account has a substantial US owner.

FI’s are reminded of the steps to report under the “ISSUED BY” option as outlined in our 21st February, 2022 press release.
