Financial Services - Preparing To Manage Stamp Duties And Financial Transaction Taxes Post-Brexit

Webinar | 21 November 2018 | 2:00 pm CET

Host: Ben Mudd
Presenters: Martin Walker, Jonathan Ginnelly, Viviane Carpentier, Mauro Lagnese

While many capital markets transactions involving UK financial institutions are likely to benefit from exemptions from stamp duties and financial transaction taxes (FTTs), can these exemptions be replicated with respect to transactions booked on EU entities? Join us as we explore how to benefit from available exemptions and reliefs, including the pitfalls to avoid. We’ll discuss:

  • How to obtain exemptions from UK and Irish stamp duty and French and Italian FTTs on transactions booked on new EU booking vehicles.
  • Whether establishing an EU booking vehicle and/or a back to back booking model adversely impacts current exemptions for the UK booking vehicle and how these risks can be mitigated.
  • Tax insights from the UK, Ireland, France and Italy.
  • A stamp/transaction tax compliance checklist post-Brexit.

Learn more about managing stamp duty and FTTs in preparing your post-Brexit operating model.

Brexit Readiness Conference

Seminar | 26 November 2018 | 8:30 am CET | Brussels

Be prepared for all eventual outcomes

As it stands, the United Kingdom will leave the European Union on 30 March 2019. Following the October 18 EU Council Meeting, a hard / no deal Brexit is more likely.

“The stakes are high; be increasingly prepared for all scenarios, including a so-called ‘hard’ Brexit,” warned the European Commission. On both sides of the Channel, signals have gone out to the business community to make the necessary preparations.

Regardless of how Brexit takes shape, it will certainly have a business impact. Contracts, supply chain, processes, people, logistics, customers, and many other areas will be affected by the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

Deloitte Brexit Readiness Conference

Despite (and because of) the uncertainty, businesses should be taking immediate action to mitigate potential risks and position themselves to take advantage of opportunities.

To help you prepare, you are invited to attend Deloitte’s Brexit Readiness Conference in Brussels, Belgium.
