Revisiting Brexit & International Taxation: What Next?

Revisiting Brexit & International Taxation: What Next?

Here's the final panel we'd like to introduce as part of Taxlinked's Beyond Borders conference!

The United Kingdom's decision to exit the European Union has thrown a giant wrench into the personal and business plans of a myriad of individuals and companies.

How will Brexit and the final agreement negotiated between Europe and the UK ultimately impact their tax obligations?

This panel discussion will look at the current state of the yet-to-be-determined Brexit mess and its final effect on international taxation, cross-border business and more.
