The Accountancy Cloud present a special evening session, a knowledge sharing event organised along with the Department of International Trade to provide peer support and discussion on Tech foreign controlled companies setting up in the UK, along with issues on funding and growth.
We will explore the key issues and what you need to know from the head of the ITEC sector team at the Department for International Trade. We'll also look at the start up tax and funding implications such as SEIS/EIS & R&D that are available for Innovative companies setting up in the UK.
Our speakers will be Stephen Hanlon, Tax Partner and Co-founder of The Accountancy Cloud who will give an overview for companies and potential investors who have heard of the SEIS scheme & R&D, want to know more about it and how it works. Stephen is a qualified Chartered Tax Adviser and a former tax partner of Ernst and Young and BDO.
Special guest speaker Terry Mankertz – Head of Sector: IT, Electronics & Communications and Creative from the Department for International Trade.
Terry has been a UK inward investment professional for 9 years. During this time he has led on, been involved in or managed teams behind the successful delivery of over 500 inward investment projects to the UK. These projects range from start-ups to major multi-nationals and include work with companies such as Kayak, Wipro, Amazon, HCL and Oracle.
There will be encouragement from the audience to ask lots of questions and network in a purposely interactive and informal session.
Refreshments will be provided.
