My sincere thanks to all, especially Jonty, for a very well focussed, comprehensive and informative presentation.
I primarily attended to hear what the implications of the Ministers budget statement regarding the fading out of financial immigration may be since I recently completed this process and tend to advise others to do so too. I also well understand that it is actually too early to know what system may substitute the current option, but the information did help to reinforce my understanding of the options and processes.
The event itself was well organized and appeared to be well received too. Simple elements like having parking organised and starting on time prove important in a place like Dubai, this event did both. All the representatives were engaging. I didn’t stay afterwards but the fact it was an option is a good approach. The information given in the talks was straight forward and I’ll work through the presentation again. Perhaps the one element that could be added is a summary of the pros and cons (and cost implications) of FE, vs DTA vs just submitting a tax return each year. Overall it is both a good business opportunity for Expat Tax Services but also a valuable link to well-delivered, information for expats. I sure there will be continued interest from this side of the world.
My general comments are as follows: The presentation followed logical path through the subject, Some slides were to busy/to much detail (perhaps bullet point main features), Format of presentation which included interactive questions was good, Presenter was very knowledgeable and was supported by subject experts. The evening was very useful in highlighting the approach from SARS and informative in terms of the future direction.
The presentation was well formatted with all relevant information and certainly clarified many of my questions. One suggestion I made to Dylan was to see if it’s possible to have more webex/online presentations for those that were not able/are not able to join the live presentations.
Thank you and your team for an enlightening and helpful presentation. Impressed with the depth of knowledge and useful information.
I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation in Khobar. Most of us where in the unknown which created a lot on unnecessary stresses.
It was very informative especially the one on ones, thank you for that.
Thank you for a very interesting and informative presentation yesterday. My husband and I found it most helpful.
First of all I would sincerely thank Tax Consulting for coming to address our concerns here in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia.
Thank you to the company for a very informative presentation.
The event was informative and was good to meet both Jonty and Nicolas. Jonty touched on some of the issues had around this journey, ahead, facing me.
