Aggressive tax planning is now very much on the wane. Accelerated Tax Payment Notices and high profile pursuit of schemes and celebrities have seen to that.

Much can still be achieved, however, through skilful tax valuations. The prerequisites for successful negotiations with HMRC include a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of market value, the more important case law decisions, how to use the rules to the taxpayer's advantage, and how to handle and deal with Shares & Assets Valuation (SAV), HMRC's valuation specialists.

This one day course will provide all that and more. Involving real life cases and examples, the speaker will guide attendees through the minefield that is often fiscal valuation, from the basic methodologies of valuation to the more esoteric examples as to what can be achieved to save tax for clients. Whether participants deal with SAV once a year or on a regular basis, this course will prove essential for Accountants and other advisers.
