Many publications only address how the tax changes affect investors of funds. Now members and guests will have the opportunity to hear how it applies to them.

Murray Sarelius (KPMG tax partner) and Rachel Piper (KPMG tax director) will discuss the new tax rules applying to offshore equity investments from 1 April 2007. This will cover the fair dividend rate rules (FDR), including quick sales in some detail. They will also discuss certain types of investment that are not eligible to use FDR, and proposed changes anticipated in the May Bill expected to be released on Budget night.

Please be on time as we have a lot to cover.
