About the Conference

CFDG is delighted to offer a full day Tax Conference covering key taxation developments relevant to charities. The conference will be hosted by Horwath Clark Whitehill and will be chaired by Pesh Framjee, Head of the not for profit unit at Horwath Clark Whitehill and Special Advisor to CFDG.

It will include sessions led by the firm's experts in charity VAT, direct taxation and employment taxation, and will also feature speakers from the Charity Tax Group, HM Revenue & Customs and the charity sector. Case studies and a closing panel session will ensure that delegates find the day relevant, stimulating and practical.

Lunch will be provided and the Conference will close with a drinks reception and a chance for further networking.

The Reception

All delegates are invited to join CFDG at the drinks reception at the close of the day. The reception provides an excellent opportunity to meet with our speakers, and to extend the networking part of the day.
