I own shares in an ESOP and the company is an Irish PLC

Customer Question
I own shares in...

I own shares in an ESOP and the company is an Irish PLC publicly traded on Nasdq. The stock is held in a Morgan Stanley ESOP account. If I have over the required minimum amount for reporting do I have to complete form 8938 or FBAR?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

I believe because the stock is held in a US Brokerage account I do not have to report but I would like to confirm.
