'Without question the best tax lecturer I have ever encountered, with MBL or elsewhere'


Many common transactions have the potential to fall foul of the transactions in securities legislation, which has been with us since FA 1960. While the rules probably no longer apply to corporation tax payers, the majority of transactions ultimately involve income tax payers to whom they may apply and HMRC's attitude is often unhelpful. This half-day seminar will take you through the legislation and give practical advice on transactions affected and how to deal with them, including getting a pre-transaction clearance from HMRC.
