Description


Breakfast will be provided

Hosted by the Financial Services Committee

Understanding and managing financial complexity is crucial for company executives. Whether it is making a cross-border investment decision or ensuring compliance in the local country – failure to do so can negatively affect performance, profitability and incur damaging penalties. For the second year, TMF Group has canvassed the views of its in-country accounting and tax experts globally to look at the world’s nations by complexity of financial compliance, by which we mean the ease with which companies can deal with taxes, adhere to reporting requirements, maintain company accounts, and deal with cross-border transactions.

Join us at our breakfast briefing on Friday, 1 June 2018 to learn more about the Financial Complexity Index 2018 which ranks 94 jurisdictions globally according to their financial complexity, what are the accounting and tax challenges to look out for, and sharing practical tips on how companies can navigate these complexities when expanding across borders.
