Thursday June 23, 2016 will be seen as one of the most historic days in the UK. After 40 years being in the European Union, the UK voted to leave.

When Brexit happens it is likely to be a trigger for change in the UK tax system.  Customs Duty, VAT and Corporation Tax could all be affected by the UK leaving the EU.  Some of the changes could force groups to restructure and some of the changes could present planning opportunities. 

In our webinar, we will take a look at some of the options and areas of taxation that businesses should be thinking about now to prepare for the UK leaving the EU.

Webinar Learning Objectives:
  • Customs Duty – what options for trade agreements are being considered and how will existing agreements be affected?  What impact could this have on a group’s supply chain?
  • VAT – how could current VAT rules on goods and services in the EU be affected?
  • EU Directives and treaty issues – will there be a risk of withholding taxes on interest and distributions of profits post Brexit? How could the changes impact US-style Limitation on Benefits provisions in treaties?
  • Transfer Pricing – have the changes in the market impaired the validity of existing benchmarking?  Is it time to review your existing transfer pricing policies?
  • Group structuring – what should international groups be thinking about who have structured their EU operations in the UK?
Despite the challenges ahead, Brexit provides many opportunities for businesses both in the UK and those with an international presence.

Our team from the UK, US and Europe will aim to provide you with insight into how to navigate your way through these interesting times and prepare you and your business for this new chapter in UK taxation.
