UK Criminal Finances Bill seminar planned

Cayman Finance will host a seminar by representatives of the U.K.’s Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs on Thursday, March 23, on Britain’s latest Criminal Finances Bill.

“If the bill is passed, the new law will have significant implications on the Cayman Islands as a jurisdiction and on businesses within the local financial services industry,” a statement from Cayman Finance read.

Jude Scott, CEO of Cayman Finance, said it is important to establish a direct line of communication between Cayman’s financial services industry and those in the U.K. who are working to pass this legislation.

“All stakeholders within the industry are encouraged to attend this seminar where attendees will hear directly from the U.K. officials providing the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification on the bill to better understand how it will affect the financial services industry,” Mr. Scott said in the statement.

Featured speakers will include Mr. Scott; Cayman Islands Governor Helen Kilpatrick; Jennifer Haslett, HM Revenue and Customs, Corporate Crime and International Engagement and representatives from Cayman’s Ministry of Financial Services, Commerce and Environment.

The seminar will be held from 1-5 p.m. on Thursday, March 23, at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. Registration is free for Cayman Finance members and is US$200 for all other attendees.
