At the recent Alliott Group EMEA regional conference in Berlin I joined tax experts from Alliott Group member firms in a round table discussion on the tax incentives offered by our respective jurisdictions to attract investment into innovation and research and development. We also talked about how laws in our countries are being formed to comply with the OECD's Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiative.

The main points of our discussion, 'How are Countries around the world Baiting the Tax Hook to Attract Investment in Innovation and R&D in a Post- BEPS World?'  have been compiled into one document which is available to read or download here. It makes interesting reading for businesses looking to compare what countries are offering to encourage the growth of innovation.

The ethos of Alliott Group is to share information and best practice amongst members, in formal settings such as conferences and special interest groups and also on an adhoc basis when questions arise.

This means that when a client has a question on say the tax treatment of a particular transaction overseas, I can pick up the phone to one of my associates in that jurisdiction and get an expert answer pretty much instantly.

If you have any questions about the incentives for investment into the UK, or into another country, please do get in touch.
