With more than 30 years' experience in international tax, Heather became fed up of attending tax events will all-male panels and subsequently founded Women in Tax. Women in Tax is a new network for women working in tax – in the profession, in-house, HMRC or anywhere else.
The International Taxation Conference will examine key challenges facing financial services professionals both today and in the future, covering fascinating areas such as the implications of the changes in the UK Non-Dom regime, global corporate tax issues following Apple, and the future likely path of tax policy.
Designed for those with an interest in tax affairs and personal and corporate tax planning, the event will be of particular interest to those working in financial crime prevention, given the focus on tax evasion and tax avoidance.
