Tuesday, January 26th, 2021 – from 10.00 a.m. to 13.00 a.m. – on the Zoom platform, the professionals of Bacciardi and Partners Tommaso Fonti, LL.M., Cristina Piangatello and Chiara Marracino will hold the webinar on “MANAGING THE BREXIT CHALLENGE: with regard to VAT, dividends, interests, royalties, excise duties and mobility of employees”, in collaboration with Confindustria Emilia Area Centro.



From January 1st, 2021 the United Kingdom has definitively left the European Union, effectively becoming a third country. Consequently, the regime of free movement of goods, services, persons and capital between the United Kingdom and the European Union will definitively end, while the new regime of rules and formalities provided for by the “Trade and Cooperation Agreement”, signed on December 24th, 2020 between the European Union and the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland (hereinafter “Agreement”), will come into force.

The webinar is aimed at analyzing the most relevant Brexit critical issues the companies may face in their commercial practice.

The webinar will address the tax issues deriving from the exclusion of the UK from the application of the EU VAT and excise system, as well as from the application of the tax benefits provided for by the “Parent–Subsidiary” Directive 2011/96/EU and the “Interest and Royalties” Directive 2003/49/EC (i.e. exemption from withholding tax on dividends, interests and royalties).

The webinar will also analyze the provisions of the Agreement relating to the mobility of employees, with particular reference to the new coordination system on social security applicable to EU employees posted to the UK and British employees posted to the European Union, as well as the provisions on visa exemption for short-term trips.

The webinar will have a practical approach; the speakers are professionals with a long and consolidated experience in advising on contractual, corporate, tax and customs aspects of international trade.

The speech will be in Italian.
