The elite speaking panel will offer practical guidance and case study examples in order for you to get the most out of the conference. 

Why Attend this Event

The Taxation of UK Property Developments and Investments  is in a Constant State of Flux.

Practitioners often taking different views on the best structure to adopt. The law is constantly changes and huge changes are in the pipeline.

How should the deal be funded? 

Is it a trading or investment transaction or one caught by the Finance Act 2016? Do I get interest relief? 

Shall I use a treaty? 

How do I plan for the big 2019 changes? 

This conference focuses on the problem areas and suggests the solutions. The final session is a major paper on the structures to adopt in individual circumstances. 

This is a major land tax conference not to be missed by those who practice in the area.
