Member FI (Member)

FATCA

A Member FI is an FFI that is registering as a Member of an EAG that is not acting as a Lead FI and that is registering as a PFFI, RDCFFI, or Limited FFI. For purposes of registration, a Member FI may also include a foreign branch of a USFI that is treated as a Reporting FI under a Model 1 IGA, or that is renewing its QI Agreement. A Member FI will need to obtain its FATCA ID from its Lead FI. The FATCA ID is used to identify the Member FI for purposes of registration and is not the same number as the GIIN. A GIIN is issued to FIs, other than Limited FFIs or Limited Branches, after the FATCA registration is submitted and approved.
