The International Client in the Age of Uncertainty

Event Focus

Great opportunities exist to advise clients who are internationally mobile as to how to manage their tax residence and where to invest their assets to manage their tax exposure. However, the environment that STEP members and our clients live and work within is changing faster than it ever has.

Topics include:

  • How the changes in the political climate are affecting the legislative agenda
  • Risks for global citizens: a new world of information exchange
  • The Criminal Finances Act 2017 – what you need to know about disclosure and liability
  • The practical issues of CRS reporting
  • Extra-territorial taxation and its enforcement
  • Tax competition and “jurisdiction shopping”
  • Implications of the European Union’s Fourth Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Directive

Why attend?

STEP’s International Client Special Interest Group will bring together specialists from around the world who will explain developments in many jurisdictions and provide attendees with an understanding of some the different opportunities available to their clients, as well as the advantages on offer and the pitfalls. Delegates will also be provided with an understanding of some of the measures being developed to ensure compliance with the often highly complicated systems of taxation.
