Rating: 0/5 from 0 people

The STEP UK Annual Tax Conference 2019 returns this year and will take place at four venues across the UK during May and June. The conference will kick off in Birmingham on 8 May 2019 and will continue in London, Leeds and Exeter.

Each year, this conference is incredibly popular, often selling out. Over 650 delegates attended this conference series in 2018; make sure you are one of them this year by signing up today! 

Why Attend:

The Annual Tax Conference takes place against the background of the Brexit negotiations, which may (or may not) be resolved by the time the series begins. The EU lecture will provide an update on this. Conference sessions will explore the impact of major developments that have occurred in recent years, including DOTAS one year on and the Capital Gains Tax (CGT) changes in recent Finance Acts, notably in respect of entrepreneurs’ relief and dealing with the Revenue and complying with the ever-increasing regulatory requirements. The area of Inheritance Tax (IHT) will also be discussed; what are the chances of reform and what areas of planning remain attractive.

A full and enlightening day is guaranteed!

Agenda topics that will be discussed will include:

  • Capital Tax update
  • Disclosure of Tax Avoidance Schemes (DOTAS)
  • The importance of the EU for STEP members
