HSBC Undisclosed Account Holders Targeted by IRSOffshore Account Update, UBS / HSBC
Posted in on August 2, 2011
Managing director at SCG Consulting Group of Boston, Michael F. Schiavao, was charged with failing to report his offshore account at HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA) to U.S. authorities.
Specifically, he is charged with failing to file a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts form, or FBAR, disclosing an account at HSBC Bank Bermuda, according to a criminal charge filed today in federal court in Boston. Schiavo has agreed to plead guilty, according to a Justice Department statement.
I am sure this is not the last HSBC client the government is going to charge!
A voluntary disclosure can help prevent this outcome.
