Many thanks for taking the time to read the final BDO Indirect Tax News for 2018. As you no doubt will see, it features interesting news and insights from BDO International colleagues from across the globe.
The partners and staff at BDO in Ireland had the pleasure of hosting many of these individuals in Dublin in October. It was fantastic to see so many people from so many different countries enjoying the Irish experience. It’s gatherings like this that really remind us how wide-spread our Irish heritage is, for though our population is only about 4.8 million, there are more than 70 million people of Irish extraction living in other countries around the world. Given this, it was not surprising that many delegates at our Conference in Dublin took the opportunity to check up on their ancestry during their short time here.
Needless to say, an imminent ‘Brexit’ also resulted in many individuals from the UK and other countries checking their ancestry to see whether they might be entitled to an Irish passport. As regards Brexit, though we don’t generally have too much involvement with passports, we’re well qualified to assist our clients and contacts with any VAT, customs, or other tax-related concerns or challenges Brexit may bring.
Finally, as this is the last ITN before Christmas, I’d like to take the opportunity to wish you and your family a happy and peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
