Leading experts from Deloitte’s UK and OECD tax policy teams will join the local tax partners for the annual Channel Islands International Tax Debate webinar on 16th June.
With international tax rules evolving and having more impact on the commercial and tax rationale for structures established in the Channel Islands, Deloitte’s International Tax debate will be looking ahead at what is on the tax horizon.
During the webinar, a number of senior Deloitte experts will discuss topics including:
- The OECD’s anti base erosion project, which has evolved into complex proposals including the concept of a minimum tax rate;
- Economic substance becoming a global standard;
- Brexit bringing ongoing uncertainty and, for the UK, a desire to evolve and be more competitive;
- Covid-19 having necessitated historic levels of government investment and highly significant fiscal pressures now and in the future;
- ESG presenting opportunities for governments and business to change the way they operate; and
- The increasing focus of governments on tax transparency and disclosure meaning the islands must be ready to react and participate in a way which is appropriate and good for business.
Deloitte’s UK tax practice will review these trends and what they might mean for the Channel Islands with delegates invited to contribute questions for the panel.
The speakers will include:
- UK Tax Partner and Deloitte’s UK Head of Tax Policy, Amanda Tickel. Amanda will provide an overview of how jurisdictions like Guernsey and Jersey might react to the changing political and taxation environment.
- International Tax Partner, Alison Lobb represents Deloitte at discussions with governments and bodies such as the OECD on taxation matters. Alison will provide an update on OECD proposals, in particular the Pillar 2 Blueprint.
- Investment Management Tax Partner at Deloitte UK, Katherine Worraker and Transactions Tax Director, Joe Macklin Gray, who will consider the way in which recent consultations by the UK Government about the UK funds industry could provide challenges and opportunities for Channel Islands structures.
Channel Islands Tax Partner at Deloitte, Jo Huxtable, said: “This year marks eight years since Deloitte held its first Channel Islands International Tax Debate and we are really pleased to be able to invite delegates along to gain insight on how best prepare for the future. We are in unprecedented waters that effect all business sectors, we need to be prepared for the unexpected.”
