RFS regime provides preferential tax treatment to offshore funds that are registered with HMRC. Given UK’s importance as an investment jurisdiction, unsurprisingly nearly 75,000 sub-funds/share classes have been granted RFS by HMRC. Given the complexity of the RFS regime, there is significant risk for financial firms of non-compliance, reputational damage and costly remediation.
Asset and wealth-management groups, as well as their administrators and service providers, need to understand and properly operate the RFS regime. This course places the RFS into context, outlining how it came into its current form, its principal provisions and current challenges.
Participants will be guided on managing the emergent non-compliance risks and the application of appropriate controls. Drawing on the HMRC guidance, that was drafted under John Buckeridge’s direction, the course will provide the participants with practical learnings of how to effectively operate the RFS. This is a timely course for professionals within financial firms including front-line and investment operations staff, tax specialists, compliance and legal officers, and directors.
