Business Bay, Dubai,



We all know that there have been significant changes to the tax climate in the UK over recent years; and it does not look like they will stop any time soon, especially in these interesting post-Brexit times of worldwide tax co-operation agreements.  

This session is an update to the one we held in January and will cover:

* The latest changes to the tax climate in the UK

* The changes for international private clients that came into effect on 6 April 2017: non-domiciled individuals

* The changes for international private clients that came into effect on 6 April 2017: inheritance tax

* Further trust anti-avoidance provisions announced for Finance Bill 2018

* Coming back to the UK: residence status

* Working in the UK and the UAE

* UAE End of Service Benefits – how should these be structured?

* International pensions

* Investing in the UK

There will be opportunities to ask questions both during and after the seminar.
