Speakers & Topics

Gerry Myton, Partner & Head of Indirect Tax, Streets Myton Indirect Tax

 An update on VAT and customs in the current climate and what the implications might be post 31st October.

Tax Update

Luke Prout, Tax Partner, Streets Chartered Accountants

  • IR35 – a brief update for 2020 rule changes
  • Employee retention with share schemes and benefits in kind

We will provide an update to the current rule changes that are being brought in from March 2020 where individuals services are provided through companies to the engager. Luke will explain how the onus for the liability to tax will shift to the engager from 2020 and how businesses should be prepared for this.

Furthermore, we will cover some tax efficient opportunities to retain and reward staff which will ensure businesses are stable with key management and also keeping in line with competitors by providing non cash benefits and incentives as part of a remuneration package.

Audit & Accountancy Update

Richard Moor, Shane Tharby, Alan Blake – Partners, Streets Chartered Accountants

Two common areas of misconception in audit and how to avoid the pitfalls:

Prevention and detection of fraud

A presentation focused on common frauds undertaken in owner managed businesses and how to avoid them. The content includes:

  • practical examples of how frauds can occur
  • what to look out for
  • internal controls in the prevention and detection of fraud
  • the role of the auditor in this area

Is your business a going concern and how to prove it

A presentation that considers the concept of going concern as well as the evidence and financial information companies should have to support this assertion.

The Imperial War Museum will be open for delegates to look round after the event - your chance to get up close to over a century of aviation with hundreds of aircraft and objects on display.
