In recent years, treasury has been facing a virtual onslaught of new federal regulations affecting everything from liquidity to risk to bank account and relationship management. Among these regulations are proposed rules to Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) reporting requirements, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), and rules governing swaps under Dodd-Frank Protocol 2.0.
Complying with these regulations is expected to be costly as treasurers may need to reengineer their operations and systems to address the changes. These new or revised rules will impact liquidity, investment policies and decisions, borrowing options, and banking relationships.
The latest installment of AFP's Treasury in Practice series, Key Regulations That Impact Treasury Operations, underwritten by KeyBank, is intended to help practitioners understand the regulations that will affect their treasury operations. This new guide will help treasurers manage the impact of these regulations on their workflow, process efficiencies and personnel, and ultimately their cash flow.
As these regulations become more commonplace, treasury departments will need to be up to speed to understand the implications going forward. It’s often an uphill battle, but with the right mix of vendor, bank and internal support, it can be done effectively.
