‘Compliance’ has become a contemporary business obsession.  However, we know that the fundamentals for success, engaged  growth and sustained competitiveness lie soundly beyond the  threshold of compliance. This applied masterclass goes beyond,  addressing the core of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and  business ethics – today critical differentiators for enduring success for  any business or organisation. Globalisation and internationalisation,  the quest for growth and increasingly intense competitive  environments, coupled with pervasive media presence and calls  for responsibility, transparency and accountability have universally  heightened the impact and implications of ethics and regulatory  pressures for businesses and organisations. Effective ethical  engagement and corporate social responsibility are instrumental  for sustainable competitiveness and continued growth - enduring  competitive advantage, and arguably, survival. This short course  equips practitioners with strategic and decisional insight and provides  interested persons among the general public a sound understanding  of key fundamentals underpinning ethical issues in human interaction  and managerial decision making - also within the broader context of  organisational behaviour and responsible corporate citizenship.

Course 301: VAT in the Financial Services Industry

Date: 19-10-2021 — 20-10-2021

Time: 09:00

Venue: ONLINE

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.

Course 226: GDPR and Data Protection - Practical Issues and Best Practice

Date: 27-10-2021 — 28-10-2021

Time: 09:00

Venue: ONLINE

Category: Education

Overview:

GDPR has empowered data subjects by providing them with  specific rights over their personal data and individuals have  a right to obtain the information that an organisation holds on  them. Organisations have a one-month window within which  to respond and many fail to understand how to deal with  such requests in an effective and compliant manner. Another  main talking point of GDPR is its new data breach notification  requirements. Whilst the act of failing to notify a breach when  required to do so can result in significant consequences,  many organisations still tend to only look into their incident  response practices if and when a breach occurs. There are  numerous incidents such as cc’ing the wrong person on an  email or theft of an employee’s laptop out of his vehicle and  these types of incidents are certainly important. Assessing  the severity and quantifying the level of risk for each incident  against the complex breach notification regulations can be  rather challenging for organisations. This course is intended  to provide some practical insights into how to meet the  personal data requests and help your organisation overcome  the challenges involved, as well as provide a breakdown of  the actions required for a streamlined and consistent incident  response management plan.

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.
