Course 301: VAT in the Financial Services Industry

Date: 30-09-2019 — 01-10-2019

Time: 09:30

Venue: Malta Stock Exchange

Category: Education

Overview:

The course will examine the key VAT considerations which are relevant for businesses operating in the financial services sector, specifically banks and financial institutions and investment services providers. Most, but not all, services supplied by operators in the financial services sector are exempt from VAT. This requires analysis of definitions and scope of the exemption, and understanding the treatment of outsourced services as well as mixed transactions. In the absence of legislative definitions, these have evolved through case-law of the CJEU, as well as domestic practice and guidelines. As a result of the broad scope of the exemptions, VAT is, to varying degrees, a cost to operators in the sector, with the restrictions on input tax recovery potentially resulting in a competitive disadvantage, in particular for those operating on a cross-border basis.

Overview:

Most Maltese financial institutions have some exposure  to the US capital markets, whether directly or indirectly.  Any Maltese financial institution that receives US sourced  income on behalf of its clients is directly subject US  Internal Revenue Code Chapter 3, also known as the QI  regulations. QI regulations dictate how clients must be  documented, how US sourced income must be taxed and  reported depending on the status of the firm as either a  qualified intermediary (QI) or non-qualified intermediary  (NQI). The US government assumes that non-qualified  intermediaries are facilitators of tax evasion. Across the  world, and including Malta, there is  increasing pressure for  NQIs to convert to QI status in order to be able to maintain  access to the US markets. QI status brings many benefits  but also includes compliance obligations for which financial  firms should be prepared.  This short course seeks to give an explanation of the main  differences between NQI and QI status, the benefits of  being a QI and the practical issues QIs need to handle.  Following this course it is expected that participants will be  able to make an informed decision about the benefits and  impact of applying to become a QI for their business.

Securities admitted to the Prospects MTF are issued by small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Investment in smaller companies can involve greater risk than is generally associated with investment in larger more established companies and can result in significant capital losses. Securities issued by SMEs tend to be illiquid and investors should therefore seek appropriate advice before making any investment.

Titoli ammessi fuq Prospects MTF jinħarġu minn intrapriżi żgħar u ta’ daqs medju (SMEs). L-investiment f'kumpaniji żgħar jista’ jinvolvi riskju akbar milli huwa ġeneralment assoċjat ma' investiment f'kumpaniji akbar u aktar stabbiliti u jista’ jirriżulta f'telf sinifikanti ta' kapital. It-titoli maħruġa mill-SMEs għandhom it-tendenza li mhumiex likwidi u l-investituri għandhom għalhekk ifittxu parir xieraq qabel ma jagħmlu xi investiment.
