'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. There has been a renewed focus on counteraction since 2010, as well as changes to the legislation in 2001 and 2016. This practical 3 hour seminar will take you through the current form of the legislation and explain what transactions are being challenged by HMRC and why.
