Join PwC for the launch of our Inbound & International Tax programme 2017

Jan 23, 2017

Given Northern Ireland is the leading UK region for attracting inward investment (outside of London) and our indigenous organisations continue to increase their presence internationally, it's important that such organisations are fully aware of the current hot topics and legislative changes that were introduced in 2016.

To address this PwC is launching an Inbound & International Tax Programme, for finance and tax professionals, to share and inform on these matters, and to provide you with an opportunity to network with organisations who are international or operate internationally.

Our first session of the Inbound & International Tax Programme will take place on Tuesday 28 February at PwC Waterfront Plaza, Belfast. 2016 saw a massive amount of change in the tax and business environment locally and globally. Many of these changes will have a practical impact in 2017. Join PwC experts to hear about the key issues that are likely to impact you and your business over the coming months.


Our initial session will focus on a number of headline tax developments, including:

The new restrictions on interest deductibility (BEPS Action 4)

  • Will your business be subject to additional UK tax as a result of the restrictions on the deductibility of interest expense, effective from 1 April 2017?
  • What will be the impact on your financing arrangements?
  • Will you be caught by the new hybrid rules, effective from 1 January 2017?

Changes to the rules for offsetting tax losses (BEPS Action 4)

  • Will the changes result in you being better or worse off?
  • Have you factored these rules into your tax cash outflows?
  • Will the rules impact on your financing arrangements?

Indirect Tax & Supply Chain in a post-Brexit world

  • Have you assessed the potential impact of VAT and UK custom changes to your business, in a post-Brexit world?
  • How will Brexit impact your current supply chain?

Country by Country reporting (CbCr) (BEPS Action 13)

  • Does your company comply with the UK and OECD's recommended standard for transfer pricing documentation?
  • Does a UK CbCr filing obligation arise?
  • Who does the obligation fall on to prepare and file within your global group?

This free event is aimed at finance and tax professionals operating in large and inbound businesses in Northern Ireland.
