Our next Urbano Finance networking breakfast in London takes place on Thursday February 28th and features guest speaker Jonathan Fisher, QC.

Urbano Finance networking breakfasts give company directors, business owners, entrepreneurs and innovators a chance to meet potential investors, lenders and advisors to make connections, build associations, as well as find business advice, support and avenues to finance.

Our speaker at this event is Jonathan Fisher, QC, who recently appeared as the independent expert on BBC Panorama programme on the use, legitimate or otherwise, on tax avoidance schemes and advice.

Jonathan will examine what constitutes legitimate avoidance of tax and what transgresses current law. He will discuss tax planning, including the use of various schemes such as trusts and offshore entities, and money laundering.

The focus at any Urbano event is on effective networking, sharing experiences and advice, exchanging information, building connections, and developing future business opportunities.

All Urbano events are open to any company. They are never dry and never dull! Non-members welcome.
