Join us for a panel discussion on the key considerations post-Brexit from a direct and indirect perspective in the context of Malta-UK transactions.

Our panellists are:

  • Dr Trudy Marie Muscat – Associate Director, KPMG Malta
  • Mr Chris Borg – Director, Deloitte Malta
  • Mr Gary Ashford – Tax Partner, Harbottle Lewis LLP
  • Mr Ian Hayes – Consultant VAT Advisor;  Chairperson Tax Technology Committee CFE Tax Advisers

During the first part of this webinar, the speakers will discuss the impact of Brexit on the cross-border direct tax treatment of investments and transactions given that the relevant EU Directives no longer apply. Amongst others, the discussion will unearth what to expect now that the UK is not bound by the Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive, the Directive on Administrative Co-Operation and fiscal State Aid constraints. Is the UK expected to diverge in direct tax matters and tax transparency? Can the EU expect an aggressive tax competitor and to what extent can we expect the UK to respect its direct tax commitments under the FTA? The speakers will also discuss the UK’s stance on the tax challenges of the digital economy and comment on whether Brexit impacts direct tax dispute resolution.

The second part of the webinar will focus on the indirect tax considerations, specifically VAT, looking at the changes to the treatment of cross-border transactions in goods and services, the change in reporting obligations and issues arising in practice.


This webinar is complimentary for Members of the MIT and the CIOT.

The participation fee for non-Members is EUR40.
