Banking & Capital Markets: Tax Update
We will provide a technical update on key tax issues facing the banking and capital markets sector. During the session we will look to the future and discuss the key issues and opportunities we anticipate to be on the horizon for our clients.

Speakers:
  • Matthew Barnes
  • Steffan Adfeldt
  • Kristoffer Burnage
  • Robert Gorrie
  • Ben Mudd
  • Wayne Weaver


Investment Management: Tax Update
A round up and discussion of recent tax updates specific to the investment management industry, together with a number of items to be considering in the forthcoming year. Areas to be covered include tax considerations in respect of investment fund products, operational taxes (including NRCGT), corporation tax and VAT & Making Tax Digital.

Speakers:
  • Kevin Cummings
  • Claire Stoddard


Brexit and Financial Services: What Next?
During this session we will explore the tax implications of future operating models post-Brexit. From reorganisations, including issues such as monitoring permanent establishment risks, to the transfer pricing policy adaptations needed to accommodate new and evolving operating models. We will also discuss ongoing recruitment and mobility considerations, as financial regulators in EU member states require substance in the new EU location to be built up over time.

Speakers:
  • Michael Eckes
  • Priscilla Ratilal
  • Sue Tilstone


G20/OECD Digitalisation Programme
With the digitalisation of the economy comes a unique set of challenges; agreement on a road map for resolving tax challenges and a commitment to working towards a consensus-based long-term solution by the end of 2020 was announced by the OECD earlier this year. During this session we will discuss possible implications of the digitalisation programme to the financial services industry.

Speakers:
  • Hannah Simkin
  • Greg Martin


Are you ready for IR35? Preparing for off-payroll requirements
Wherever you are with your IR35 preparations now that the draft legislation and HMRC’s guidance have been published, we will walk you through the forthcoming requirements and actions required by both end users and supply chain engagers. We will share our market insights and the diverse actions being taken as well as the market impact we are already witnessing across the financial services sector to manage this substantial change to the engagement of off-payroll workers.

Speakers:
  • Michael Nicolaides
  • Kunal Patel


Tax Controversy and the Risk Governance Cycle
Tax controversy continues to grab headlines, with new disclosure regimes announcements, estimate tax gap statistics being published and recent tax case law results coming to light. Last year’s conference looked at particular hot topics in controversy, the drivers for those trends and the impact on funds. This year’s session will look at how the risk, governance and controversy cycle arises within a business from pre-dispute monitoring to open enquiries through to litigation. The aim of this session is to help participants understand how an initial conversation can develop, and how tax controversy intersects with other business challenges of today.

Speakers:
  • Glen Harling
  • Annis Lampard
  • James Panayi
  • Michael Pape


Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive II (ATAD II)
ATAD II requires EU member states to introduce a comprehensive set of rules, similar to those proposed by the OECD in its Action 2 report, to counteract a range of hybrid mismatch arrangements . Businesses may already have made changes to their business models and arrangements in response to the UK anti- hybrid rules which applied from 1 January 2017 but will now need to consider the impact of similar rules in the rest of Europe and how those could impact on both new and existing arrangements.

Speakers:
  • Kate Ramm
  • Francisco Da Cunha


Indirect Tax: FS Update
The Indirect Tax landscape is changing significantly, with digital and real time reporting creating both unique challenges and opportunities. In this session we will explore the changes across a number of territories and the impact these are having for Tax departments. The use of data, real-time reporting, management of risk and relationships with the Tax Authorities driven by data all present challenges and opportunities. To address and benefit from these there is no doubt that active steps need to be taken. How can you benefit from these changes? What would you like to achieve from these additional obligations?

Speakers:
  • Demain De Souza
  • Judith Lesar
  • Neil Reeve


DAC6 – EU Mandatory Disclosure Regime
DAC6 requires mandatory reporting on certain cross-border arrangements to help EU member states react against harmful tax practices. The directive imposes new reporting obligations to intermediaries, and such, all financial services organisations, including banks, brokers, investment managers and financial advisors with operations in the EU must assess whether they have participated in reportable cross-border arrangements since 25 June 2018. During this session we will provide an update on the latest DAC6 developments and will discuss what Financial Services organisations can do to respond to the new requirements.

Speakers:
  • Owen Gibbs
  • Fehar Jallu
  • Martin Walker


US Tax Reform: FS Update
With US Tax reforms affecting businesses outside of the US, we’ll look at what you need to know if you’re impacted. Discussion will focus on the implications to financial services businesses, as well as other international developments that need to be considered.

Speakers:
  • Marek Krawczyk
  • Jim Charlton


Tax Automation: Moving from Buzzwords to Business as Usual
Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Robotics and Blockchain are no longer just words on a ‘buzzword bingo’ grid, they are now increasingly prevalent in many tax departments. Technology can help meet compliance obligations and improve the accuracy of tax filings, enabling tax professionals to add value in other areas of the business as a result. In this session, we will draw on case studies to identify how financial service organisations are leveraging technology in their tax function, e.g. using machine learning to detect miscoded invoices; as well as developing the right talent mix in the team, e.g. changing training requirements and job profiles to bring in tax technology skills.

Speakers:
  • Julie Hughff
  • Frankie Jell
  • Laurence Kiddle
  • Stephen Locke
  • Tyler O'Callaghan
  • James Paul
  • David Wright
  • Salim Zaman


Case Law: Walk and Talk
During this walking-tour session we will revisit a number of recent tax case decisions and will discuss their relevance to the Financial Services industry. Discussions will include IR35 as well as a summary of other topical cases.

Speakers:
  • Simon Cooper
  • Andrew Clarke
  • Eleanor Meredith
