Edwin Coe is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a seminar on Tuesday, 27 March 2018 which will focus on the Requirement to Correct (RTC) and its impact. Taxpayers with overseas assets or interests with any UK liability as at 5 April 2017, will be required to correct any errors or omissions in their historic UK tax position by 30 September 2018.


Our leading team of tax specialists also includes former senior inspectors from HMRC’s specialist Fraud Investigation Service Offshore team.  They will be discussing the following:

  • The background behind RTC and general overview
  • What does it mean for taxpayers?
  • How do I disclose?
  • What should I and my clients be doing right now?
  • What will be the position for the taxpayers who do not disclose by 30 September 2018?
  • How Edwin Coe can help

Who should attend 

The seminar will be of particular interest to advisors, who have clients with any type of offshore assets or income, or anyone wanting to fully understand the ramifications of not regularising offshore assets or income before 30 September 2018.
