With the forthcoming implementation of Brexit and other changes to the tax environment we have witnessed in 2016, the need for trustees and sponsoring employers to properly consider the mitigation of tax leakage is now perhaps more pressing than ever before.
Our recent breakfast event was an opportunity for our global PwC experts as well as external speakers, to discuss the relevant tax issues faced by pension funds such as:
- Brexit and EU law claims;
- Responding to the increased scrutiny, controls and disclosure requirements of tax authorities; and,
- Managing tax leakage by accessing the treaty rates of withholding tax.
