Shipping Masterclass – Sailing through Europe’s Prominent Yachting Jurisdictions
Discrepancy in VAT rules across Europe over the last years proved the importance of specialised guidance in this sector.
The KPMG Learning is organising a special edition of the Shipping Masterclasses focused on Yachting in Europe. The KPMG Learning Academy will bring together around a virtual table experts from different VAT Teams across the KPMG Network to provide you with VAT insights and updates about Europe’s most competitive jurisdictions such as Malta, Italy, France and UK.
The webinar will also delve on updates from the UK following the entering into full force of Brexit.
The Webinar will be moderated by Stephan Piazza, Senior Manager and Yachting Leader at KPMG Malta and will be followed by a Q&A session.
The course is addressed to lawyers, accountants and yacht specialists.
This session is meant to provide guidance on the recent changes to VAT rules affecting this industry during the last years.
Time: 09:30 – 11:45 (including 15 minutes break)
Venue: Live online session – details of how to join the meeting will be sent once registration is complete.
