Dbriefs Webcast

Tuesday 20 April 2021, 12.00 BST/13.00 CEST 

Host: Matt Batham

Presenters: Anthony Stobart, Annis Lampard, Michael Pape

Economic pressures due to Brexit and COVID-19 have put a strain on government coffers. Robust tax compliance remains as important as it
has ever been and during uncertain economic times tax risk can be even more
prevalent. Market resurgence and a rising level of transactions means
organisations are at a point where tax risks, as well as profitability, are
under increased buyer scrutiny. How can tax controversy help with tax risk
assessment? We’ll discuss:

  • The wider tax controversy landscape with HMRC.
  • How tax controversy can support M&A processes, e.g. through:
    • containing reputational and financial risk with informed diligence stage risk assessment
    • handling buy-side post transaction voluntary disclosure to HMRC.

Delve into how tax controversy can support and enhance the transaction process.
