SRA Competency B


The UK corporation tax regime has a number of overlapping rules which limit deductions for interest expense.

In the last few years, the rules have become even more complex following on from the work done at the OECD to try to tackle base erosion through its various BEPS workstreams. This will require careful attention for all companies, whether large or small.

This virtual classroom session will summarise the various UK regimes impacting interest relief to bring you up to date.
