On Thursday 23rd February, we had the pleasure of holding the breakfast seminar “Brexit: Tax and International Transactions for Businesses”, organised in collaboration with our Patron SCA Ontier, who hosted the event, and also to our member Afex.
With Brexit as the key point, this session’s aim was to analyse the future of the different fiscal impositions, which are being affected by this context and how all the process is modifying international transactions. The seminar’s main focus was on the effects of Brexit on both the European Union and United Kingdom’s political and economic bilateral relations.
On this occasion, our Corporate Relations Manager, Ms. Nerea Esgueva, gave a warm welcome to the attendees on behalf of the Chamber and introduced Mr. Deepash Patel, Senior Associate at SCA ONTIER, and Mr. Trevor Charsley, Senior Advisory, Partner at Afex.
To kick off, Mr. Patel gave a brief summary of Brexit political context and then he continued with an explanation about the fiscal environment. His presentation was divided into four main parts: Direct Taxes, Indirect Tax, EU Tax Reform, and British Tax Haven, concluding with a series of questions, which helped to clarify this topic.
After the speech of Mr. Patel, Mr. Charsley began with his presentation on the subject of International Transactions. He analysed the political and economic current situation and how they affect the main currencies in global transactions. As his talk went on, interest grew among participants when impact on the euro and the pound post-Brexit and the current political climate in Europe were discussed. Coming to the end of his presentation, Trevor showed attendees a forecast with a variety of predictions for the main world’s currencies.
Before the seminar was over, a Q&A round was made in order for participants to expose their doubts and questions to the two experts.
To conclude the seminar, participants were invited to enjoy breakfast, whilst given the opportunity to discuss the session’s ideas and concepts further with the speakers.
