Finance Bill 2020 received Royal Assent last week. Contained in the Finance Act 2020 are provisions allowing HMRC to go after those who have wrongfully claimed Government support payments offered in response to the CoVid-19 pandemic.

In this webinar, Mala will discuss the new provisions in the Finance Bill and approaches HMRC may take to claw back wrongfully obtained funds. Nazim will talk about expectations on employees (particularly those in regulated professions) and whether they should be required to make AML reports, whistleblower rights and a host of other things legal.

The webinar will start at 1700 promptly with questions taken throughout and at the end of the session.
