Practice Matters - The Winter Update for Financial Teams in Law Firms

21 December 2016

We are pleased to share our latest issue of Practice Matters, a series of regular updates for finance and management teams in law firms. This issue provides a useful summary of the key areas that we have been discussing with our clients over the last few months.

In this edition we take a closer look at various international tax issues with Trump's tax plans in the US following the US Presidential election and the introduction of withholding taxes in France. We have also included commentary on the Autumn Statement relevant to Professional Services Firms, details of the recent HMRC consultation on partnerships and a timely guide to the tax treatment for entertainment events for partners and staff.

Also on the agenda is an update on the SRA consultation on Accounts Rules Simplification and we have included a feature on cyber security and what law firms should be thinking about to safeguard themselves against a cyber-attack.
