About the conference

Taxation issues are at the heart of global politics and economics. This highly topical event will examine key challenges facing financial services professionals both today and in the future, covering fascinating areas such as the implications of the changes in the UK Non-Dom regime, global corporate tax issues following Apple, and the future likely path of tax policy. Delegates will hear from industry professionals, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs and speakers from the Big Four in what is sure to be a thought-provoking and stimulating event.

Who is the conference for?

Designed for those with an interest in tax affairs and personal and corporate tax planning, this event will appeal to financial services professionals at corporate service providers, those working in banking, wealth management or fund management. The event will be of particular interest to those working in financial crime prevention, given the focus on tax evasion and tax avoidance.

What can you expect?

Designed in collaboration with industry and local experts, this event is essential for those wanting to keep up to date with key developments in taxation.

Speakers will examine a host of issues, including HMRC’s recent changes to the UK Non-Dom regime, tax transparency and the OECD base erosion and profit shifting agenda. Delegates can expect to hear from the big four as well as representatives from HMRC, the TaxPayers' Alliance and the States of Jersey.

Speakers will present for around 20 minutes, after which there will be an interview with the conference chairman who will also encourage questions from the audience.

During the day there will be plenty of time for delegates to network with like-minded professionals as well as our speakers. There will be two refreshment breaks as well as a lunch break, where delegates can expect a delicious hot lunch.
