Business Meeting
Charlotte Barbour By Charlotte Barbour, ICAS Director of Taxation

31 October 2017

There are lots of reasons to attend the one-day ICAS tax course ‘Current Tax’ writes Charlotte Barbour.

Despite recent political uncertainties, there remains one certainty for practitioners: the ICAS flagship course ‘Current Tax’.

This is an excellent opportunity for practicing accountants and staff involved in tax work to bring their technical knowledge right up to date. Professor Alex McDougall, who is chairing the course, notes:

This course offers everything that is best about ICAS: an opportunity to learn from fellow CAs, a concentrated day focussing on current changes to tax law and practice that affect practitioners, and the chance to catch up with friends and colleagues. I look forward to seeing members and their staff at Current Tax.

‘Current Tax’ will address a number of topics including:

  • Exciting Corporate Tax changes such as the new company loss rules and Substantial Shareholding Exemption
  • Personal Tax and rental income updates
  • Tax implications and incorporation
  • Interactions between ICAS and HMRC
  • Making Tax Digital
  • Tax avoidance enabler penalties
  • The relevance to an individual of Domicile
  • Finance (No 2) Bill 2017 changes
  • Contingent workers – IR35
  • HMRC emerging trends for employment personal tax
  • Termination payments and optional remuneration
  • Examination of case law including interesting tax cases and those of potential importance to tax practitioners

This ICAS flagship course provides a succinct summary of current changes to tax and is chaired by our distinguished member, Professor Alex McDougall, with the following speakers:

  • Bob Crawford BA CA CTA
  • Hazel Gough BA CTA TEP
  • John Cairns BA CA CTA
  • Jim Gillespie CTA
  • Charlotte Barbour MA CA CTA (Fellow)

I do hope you can attend ‘Current Tax’. Further details can be found here.
