Whether you are a compliance officer, a wealth manager or an operational tax officer, our standard, hands-on training courses will put you on top of tax issues.

Some courses are delivered in cooperation with AZEK, the Swiss Training Centre for Investment Professionals.

Based on our practical methodology, we offer assistance, analysis, check-list, review, health-check in area of tax compliance and tax suitability in order to effectively address your needs with cost-efficient tailor-made solutions.

Training

While it is mandatory to ensure the tax compliance of clients, it is far more important – for the future of a financial intermediary – to focus on the requirements of the Ultimate Private Taxpayer clients. The crucial test is performance after tax.

To help Wealth Managers or Compliance Officers meet that challenge, BRP Tax is proposing training sessions that provide practical information and procedures designed to build the professional competencies required by the new Wealth Management industry. The purpose is to bring “tax chaos” back under control, and to create a common corpus of procedures, understood and shared by all.

We focus our proposal on hands-on training courses on taxation of financial instruments, one course per tax jurisdiction covered, but also on specific courses on tax transparency rules such as CRS-AEOI.

We deliver introductory courses for staff working in Operations, covering the calculations of taxable income, tax claims, as well as reporting duties.

These courses can be delivered in cooperation with AZEK, the Swiss Training Centre for Investment Professionals.


Assistance and Review

Based on our practical methodology, we offer assistance, analysis, check-lists, review, waivers, policy, health-check in area of tax compliance and tax suitability in order to effectively address your needs with cost-efficient tailor-made solutions.

BRP Tax provides competent assistance on bulk of cases that bank staff are reasonably expected to address and solve by themselves, as covered by our manuals. We can clarify how a bank should follow regulation (particularly Anti-Money Laundering or tax reporting), implement processes, use calculation rules or apply best practices to a specific case.

We regularly inform our clients on tax news via our Tax Alerts.

We also provide analyses of the tax status of financial products. We also provide financial intermediaries with an access to the BRP network of national tax experts worldwide. Collaboration with national tax experts generally includes assistance, advisory and support to banks in relation to specific mandates and joint-events with BRP Tax partners.

Project Assistance: Translation into Business Rules​

BRP Tax is available to assist banks into projects of translating the information contained in the Tax Manuals into business rules that can be directly integrated into theirs software systems (rules engine).

BRP Tax consultants have a strong hands-on experience in that field, to help banks achieve maximum results and maximum automation, with a minimum expense of time and resources. Since human beings will be the sole responsible of the results obtained, and they will have to process all exceptions in an automated (high speed) environment, hard-skills of the internal staff of the Bank to solve tax issues will be even more crucial. Manuals and trainings are thus a vital prerequisite to start such a project.
