Financial Institutions and Host Country Taxing Authorities can enroll users of IDES using this Enrollment tool. 


Step 1 Step 2 Step 3

What is it?


The IDES Enrollment tool is a secure, web based system that Financial Institutions (FIs) and the Host Country Tax Authorities (HCTAs) will use to gain access to the IDES environment.

For the FIs, access will require registering on the FATCA website and receiving a GIIN. A certificate from an approved Certificate Authority (CA) is also required to enroll for the first user. Subsequent enrollments will be handled by the Administrator.

For HCTAs, you will need your HCTA Username that was sent to you by the IRS and a certificate from an approved Certificate Authority (CA) is also required for the first user registration. Subsequent registrations will be handled by the first HCTA registrant.

What does it do?


The Enrollment for IDES will allow both FIs and HCTAs access to the IDES environment. This will be accomplished by confirming that the correct GIIN is entered and that a valid certificate is provided. Invalid or expired certificates will prevent Enrollment from occurring.

The first enrollment will establish user IDs for the rest of their FI or HCTA. The newly registered user will receive an email indicating their ID is ready and their password will need to be changed. User security questions will be established during this first time logging in. Also, user preferences associated with IDES Alerts can be selected.
