FATCA within the Oberbank AG

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is a US-legislation which was adopted on 18th of March 2010 and came into force on 1st of July 2014. Substantially FATCA is a regulatory reporting obligation for Foreign Financial Institutions (FFI) concerning their US-customers.


In April 2014 the Austrian Republic signed the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the U.S. that states its intent to comply with the FATCA regulations and Austria is treated by the U.S. as a jurisdiction with completed Intergovernmental Agreement Model 2.

In this context we may inform you that the Oberbank AG is registered at the IRS as „Expanded affiliated Group” with the FATCA status of a Reporting Financial Institution under a Model 2 IGA. The Oberbank AG got the following Global Intermediary Identification Number (GIIN) assigned: E8HZCK.00000.LE.040
