Wednesday, 24 February 2021
11:00 am – 12:00 pm (UK time)
    • James Heathcote, Lancaster Knox

With UK debt soaring as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, HM Treasury needs to find new ways of raising revenue in the years ahead. Tax policy will doubtless be pivotal to this, but what changes might lie ahead?

With talk in recent months of Capital Gains Tax changes, Inheritance Tax reform, and even the possibility of a Wealth Tax, private clients and their advisors should look to the (not-too-distant) future in order to be on the front foot with tax planning and effective asset structuring.

Learning objectives
By the end of the session, delegates will be able:

  • To discuss budget speculation and possible changes
  • Look at the changing attitudes to tax planning
  • Discover structuring affairs in a world of transparency
