Join Duff & Phelps for a Regulatory Breakfast Briefing looking at HMRC's tax evasion strategy and what firms in Jersey can do to protect themselves. This briefing will include an update on recent UK legislation and offshore tax sanctions, including a focus on the new criminal corporate offence of failing to prevent facilitation of tax evasion and changes to the UK non-domicile rules.
Guest speakers Gary Ashford, Partner and Chartered Tax Adviser at Harbottle & Lewis and Andy Cole CBE, Former Director of Specialist Investigations at HMRC, will explain the potential criminal and civil liability on firms and practical steps that management can take in response. The seminar will also identify some of the risk flags of aggressive offshore tax avoidance planning and tax evasion, how to spot them within your client base, and HMRC’s potential response.
