Overview of our webinars, seminars and events.
Increased regulation, changing tax legislation and greater tax transparency are changing the role and responsibilities of tax function. We will provide practical guidance to help give your workforce the skills they will need to face the future with confidence by demonstrating how you can develop a programme to nurture and retain the different types of talent needed for a tax function of the future.
Do you know your cognitive from your artificial intelligence? Join us on Thursday 21 September when Gary Richardson and Kirsty Rockall will talk through digital labour techniques, explain how they are gaining traction, cover, how they can be applied to the tax function – and discuss why this is becoming increasingly essential.
Have you set a tax technology strategy? On Wednesday 23 August Jonathan Cobb and Chris Downing will explain why companies need to add this to their board agenda and set out how to go about working out what this should entail to enable your organisation to gain greater insight and save costs through better analysis of its tax affairs.
This was our first webinar in a series focussing on technology and the role it is playing in shaping the future of tax.
How can you help ensure your tax function is ready to meet the challenges of the future? Chris Downing and Genevieve Watson built on our event from earlier in the year to explore what’s driving innovations in finance and tax and how these changes will translate through to organisations’ systems and technology. They also considered steps your company should take to understand the evolving regulatory landscape and the growing demand for digital information from the Tax Authorities across the world.
We'd all like to boost working capital and generate greater cash savings by improving our financial housekeeping. But how?
KPMG tax experts Simon Shaw, Steve Blacker and William Gull answered that question and addressed queries during our webinar on Thursday 20 July.
We delved into ways your business can ensure that it is claiming all relevant tax incentives and reliefs and how R&D reliefs and the capital allowances regime could help past and future investment.
We discussed the latest news about the changes that will limit the corporate tax deductibility of interest expenses in the UK. These rules are currently expected to be applicable from 1 April 2017 and represent a significant shift in how the amount ofdeductible interest is calculated.
Rob Lant, Head of Corporate Tax, Daniel Head, National Head of Transfer Pricing and John Monds, Director, Tax took us through the draft legislation and discussed some practical implications of the rules. We have answered all of the questions we recived from the audience on your CIR tax diary page.
We covered the new rules which will restrict the amount of profit that can be relieved by carried forward losses to 50% and introduce group relief for carried forward losses. Although these rules have been removed from the Finance Bill, we anticipate that they will still come into effect on 1 April 2017 so companies need to get to grips with them now. Iain Kerr, Director, Mergers & Acquisitions Tax, explained what the draft legislation says in plain English.
The discussion included recent developments (including the impact of the OECD’s multilateral instrument and updates to HMRC policy), as well as the practical challenges and opportunities for corporates operating in an international tax environment.
