Tax in Company Accounts – IFRS

Tax payable by a company in a particular year may bear little relationship to the amount of tax reported in the financial statements, depending on the laws in the country concerned, largely because of deferred tax.  The standard which governs the treatment of taxation in company accounts is IAS 12 – Income Taxes. There are references to tax in other standards, notably IAS 1 – Presentation of Financial Statements, and although there is reference to this the course centres on IAS 12. This Tax in Company Accounts – IFRS practical course gives a detailed explanation of the application of deferred tax and the necessary disclosures and how to account for current and deferred taxation in accounts for companies using IFRS. It concentrates on the effects on profit, assets and liabilities and the notes to the accounts using numerous worked examples.

Taxation of UK Trusts

Trusts can seem a daunting prospect to tax practitioners with their own tax rules which differ depending on the type of trust involved.  HM Revenue & Customs’ perception that trusts are used as tax avoidance vehicles has also seen an increasing body of tax avoidance legislation.

The aim of this course Taxation of UK Trusts  is to introduce tax practitioners to what a trust is and how it operates and the special taxation rules that apply to trusts.  It considers the different types of trust that are found in the UK and addresses the different tax regimes that apply to each of them with worked examples and case studies.

The Implications for Organisations of the Modern Slavery Act 2015

This Modern Slavery Act 2015 course considers the practical implications of the Act – it only applies explicitly to larger organisations but its effects are already being felt by SMEs. Delegates will learn about the key indicators of modern slavery risk and the type of actions they should be taking to prevent it – in their own business and in their suppliers. They will review specimen transparency statements and consider the key issue of reputational risk around non-compliance. The course is highly interactive with practical tips, case studies and lessons learned from a review of recent cases and headlines.
