Tax residency issues “the new black”: insights for young tax professionals

2020 young tax professionals webinar event

Residency is a key concern to understand when it comes to just about any tax practice, whether you’re advising individuals or multinational corporations with cross-border interests. But how do you get started in understanding this vital space?

We caught up with Neil Brydges CTA, Principal Lawyer in Sladen Legal’s tax group, ahead of his presentation for the upcoming 2020 Young Tax Professionals Online Series.

He will be presenting on Tax Residency for individuals and corporates, discussing the significance of residency for tax purposes in regard to the case law, ATO guidance, and recent policy developments. With over a decade of experience in the tax profession and a practice covering broad areas including corporate and international taxation, cross-border financing, inbound and outbound investment and foreign currency transactions, Neil is well-versed in the topic of residency and how important it can be in tax matters.

“Residency touches all areas of tax practice. The rules are deceptively complicated, interconnected, and heavily dependant on the facts and circumstances of the matter at hand,” said Neil.

“The increased global mobility of individuals and online transactions, together with the deregulation of financial markets and exchange controls since the 1980s, mean that tax issues related to residency are “the new black” that all tax practitioners need to understand.”

According to Neil, delegates at his session can expect to gain an understanding of how the residency rules work, the tax consequences of being a resident or non-resident, moving in-and-out of residency, and proposed reforms in the space.

A comprehensive understanding of residency considerations is an important foundation for your tax practice. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn from and discuss with Neil!
