The expansion of activity – including financial transactions – by U.S.-based nonprofits overseas continues to increase, raising a complex host of U.S. and foreign regulatory, tax, and other issues. These international financial transactions are subject to an array of requirements, which can pose significant risks to U.S.-based nonprofits if not followed. This program – led by two Venable attorneys who work extensively with nonprofit organizations and others in this area – will cover topics such as:

  • Foreign exchange controls
  • Scrutiny of foreign funding of U.S.-based nonprofits; requirements for domestic entities receiving funding from abroad
  • Banking controls and accountability, including challenges to having nonresidents as signatories on local currency bank accounts
  • Cash transaction risks and procedures
  • Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) licensing requirements for U.S.-based nonprofits making payments to persons in foreign countries subject to sanctions
  • Recent sanctions against Russia
  • Taxation and information reporting requirements
  • Transfer pricing issues
  • Differences between local country accounting rules and U.S. accounting rules

For any U.S.-based nonprofit operating overseas, this is a program you will not want to miss.
