The FIRPTA Statement component specifically focuses on certifying the US corporation's understanding and compliance with FIRPTA regulations.

By utilizing this legal template, both the buyer and seller can clearly define their respective rights, obligations, and expectations, while ensuring compliance with FIRPTA regulations. It helps facilitate a smooth and organized share purchase transaction, reducing the potential for disputes or legal complications related to tax compliance.
