Concurrent Closing Workshops

The private funds community is currently in an era of great regulatory change. In order to show your value within your organisation you need to keep up to date with the latest regulations that are impacting your business. In these workshop sessions designed for the senior finance professional or senior compliance professional, we’ll take a closer look at the two greatest pain points for the back-office community.

Workshop A Workshop B

The private equity world has already begun to feel the impact of changes to tax regulation. Many of these recent changes have been been as mostly positive, while future changes for the industry remain speculative. In this in-depth workshop session, you’ll take a closer look at how BEPS is impacting the private equity community and what you should be doing to ensure effective implementation. We’ll also take a look at the state of tax reform and what you need to do to prepare.

Topics to be discussed include:

Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS)
• The impact of Action 6 on fund structuring
• Assessing the risk of tax leakage when structuring hybrid
arrangements
• BEPS impact on deal value
• Tax reporting based on jurisdiction
• Granting treaty benefits when appropriate

Tax Reform
• Carried interest and its impact on fund structure
• Failure to prevent facilitation of tax evasion

The past several years have seen an increase in the number of laws regulating the private funds community. Some of the legislation is direct while others are indirect – but still require the efforts of the compliance team. While many of the regulations will remain, Brexit and the call for deregulating Dodd-Frank will undoubtedly impact the compliance role going forward.

In this workshop session, you’ll drill down on how these changes are impacting compliance and learn what you need to be doing to comply.
