Opening of FATCA IDES Gateway
International Data Exchange Service (IDES) Gateway is open from February 27. All IDES enrollees may use the IDES Gateway to securely send FATCA information reports on U.S. financial accounts. IDES will support application-to-application exchanges through SFTP transmission protocols. Data transmitted via IDES will be encrypted at both the file and transmission level to safeguard sensitive tax information.
