Private Client Tax Conference
Our inaugural Smith & Williamson Private Client Tax Conference took place on 24th March 2021 where we heard from a great range of speakers including Bill Dodwell from The Office of Tax Simplification and experts from Tilney and Smith & Williamson.
At the conference we explored Funding the Future, how will private clients plan for, and pay for the future in post COVID/Brexit Britain? COVID-19 has dominated the news agenda for the past twelve months and governments are grappling with significant macro-economic issues for the costs incurred to date and what is yet to come, especially when considering the impact in the UK of Brexit.
