Saffery Champness Chartered Accountants
in Bournemouth hosted a breakfast seminar at the AFC Bournemouth Vitality Stadium and welcomed many members of the Financial and Legal Services business community from across Bournemouth and Poole.
It was hosted by Saffery Tax Director Ian Harlock-Smith who has extensive experience in advising high net worth individuals in domestic and international tax matters.
The seminar focused on the 2017 Finance Bill and the upcoming income and capital gains tax changes for non-domiciled individuals.
Ian advised, “After a frustratingly long period of consultation, which started in July 2015, HMRC have published the final tax rules aimed at non- domiciled individuals that will come into force on 6 April 2017. Today’s presentation has been about highlighting the changes to our professional colleagues, to help them highlight these changes to their individual clients. It’s great to see such a high turnout.”
Alistair Ellen from FP Wealth Management commented, “It’s been a good opportunity to network with peers in the Financial Services industry but at the same time learn some high- level information from a leading firm of accountants. Non-doms are of particular interest to us as many of our clients are non-domicile or will be deemed so under the new legislation. It’s interesting to hear Saffery’s view on the changes to legislation and the planning opportunities that lie ahead for us.”
