Germany: FATCA test system database deleted; data may need to be resubmitted
Germany: FATCA test system database deleted
Germany’s central tax office (BZSt) announced that the database for the FATCA test system was deleted on 18 May 2020.
Successful transmission of a deletion message (FATCA13) is possible only if the FATCA message to be referenced (FATCA11) was processed in the test system and the sender received a positive feedback. The data may have to be resubmitted if the new message does not have the same content as the previous one (however, file name, MessageRefID, and DocRefId must differ).
