 PKF European Tax Meeting – 15 & 16 December 2013, Amsterdam, Netherlands – 3rd European Tax Meeting
After the successful relaunch of the European VAT group in early September 2013, a number of partners and staff have requested to have more frequent European Tax meetings. Sharing knowledge and expertise helps us gain new clients, specifically if we enhance the collaborative culture PKF has. Further, the new collaborative tool “PKF 365” will help to facilitate such initiatives and to gather momentum in specific tax areas.
The European Tax meeting addressed several tax areas such as cross border structuring & transfer pricing, indirect taxes/ VAT and international mobile executives & tax outsourcing.

Additionally, the “International Audit and Accounting Meeting” was also be held in Amsterdam at the same time, which provided a great opportunity for all attendees to network with other delegates from across the globe.

Master Investor – 27th April 2013, London UK
The Maltese Government announced last year that it wants to make it a priority to consider a strategy to support future oil and gas exploration in our offshore waters. Joe Mizzi the Hon Minister now responsible for oil and gas exploration division, declared he has already spoken to companies which have shown interest to invest in this sector. All seven areas on the island’s continental shelf will be open for licensing even though one must be aware that it is a risky business which needs massive investment not only to conduct Seismic 3D tests but to drill in the relative deep waters.

In this context it is encouraging to read that the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure together with bank of Valletta are supporting PKF Malta who have been invited to speak on the ‘Rising Stars’ stage at the Master Investor 2013 conference in central London to attract investors in the oil and gas exploration sector on the 27th April 2013. Not without reason, this event attracts over 2,500 attendees annually who rate the conference as a unique opportunity to meet the top executives in various sectors including oil and gas exploration and ancillary industries

The conference gives investors unique insights on country specific opportunities was in its 11th year and it is encouraging that PKF invited companies, representatives of the Ministry for Transport and Infrastructure and key representatives in the oil procurement division to participate and actively contribute to the development of the industry.

Master Investor brought together highly regarded speakers on a range of investment topics, top executives from quoted companies and the largest private investor audience of any UK show in an environment where we encourage discussion, analysis and debate.
