Tax Planning for 2019

A Two-Silk Afternoon at The Law Society’s Hall, London WC2A

Wednesday November 14th 2018


Arbitrary, retrospective and unfair charges on “loans” and “quasi-loans” to employees and the self-employed “outstanding” on April 5th 2019 are already law.

Substantial parts of forthcoming Finance Bill, which will become Finance Act 2019 in February 2019, were published in July.

The whole of Part 1 of the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992 is to be replaced!

The rules for attributing capital gains of offshore companies to United Kingdom residents are being re-written.

There are to be added to charges recently introduced yet further charges on non-UK residents in respect of United Kingdom land and buildings, whether held directly or indirectly.

The seminar will deal with changes - actual and proposed - to tax law in the above areas.

A panel of barristers will discuss tax planning in the light of recent Finance Acts and likely future changes.
