Why do I need to disclose whether I am a US citizen, US resident alien or US tax resident?

MeDirect asks this question in order to comply with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). This is a US law which requires non-US financial institutions to provide the US tax authority (the Internal Revenue Service or IRS) with information on certain US persons with accounts outside of the US. If you qualify as a US person, you cannot apply for an account.


We strive to ensure a streamlined account opening process, via a structured and clear set of requirements and personalised assistance during the initial communication stages. If you are interested in opening a corporate account with MeDirect, please complete an Account Opening Information Questionnaire and send it to corporate@medirect.com.mt.
