Conyers held its third live webinar for The Hong Kong Institute of Chartered Secretaries (HKICS) members titled “Update on Economic Substance Regimes in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands” on Thursday, 25 March 2021. The training session was extremely successful and attracted a recording-breaking number of more than 400 members of HKICS to participate.
The webinar started with a welcome speech by Kitty Liu, the Company Secretarial Consultant of AIA International.
The insightful presentation aimed at helping participants better understand the latest developments in Economic Substance and its potential impact on enterprises.
Our Associate Alexander Doyle and Legal Manager Yvonne Lee started the webinar by briefing the attendees on the updates on Economic Substance Regimes in the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands. They also provided case studies to better explain the technical aspects of the filing requirements, and answered quite a number of interesting questions raised by the HKICS members.
Supervisor of Conyers Corporate Services Hong Kong, Miranda Ho, hosted the last section where she focused on sharing practical tips for filling in and submitting the Economic Substance Return successfully. The step-by-step guide was extremely helpful for anyone who was responsible for the filing process. The Q&A session was extremely lively.
We look forward to offering informative sessions to HKICS members again.
