The Ceylon National Chamber of Industries (CNCI), the pioneering industry chamber in the country has scheduled a half day seminar on New Inland Revenue Act 2017 to the public and private sector employees to be conducted on 12 October from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Mahaweli Centre, 96, Ananda Kumaraswami Mawatha, Colombo 7 (between Public Library and Nelum Pokuna).

The Inland Revenue Act (IRA) published by Gazette on 19 June along with amendments made at the committee stage was passed by parliament on 7 September. The new Act will be effective from 1 April 2018.

CNCI also believes that other organisations and relevant and interested individuals too have the need of knowing the changes imposed by the new Act. 

The scheduled seminar will cover the salient areas of the new Act and also will give room for the participants to clear any doubts in getting them clarified by the experienced resource persons. This half-day seminar will provide the participants with an ample opportunity to be thorough with any changes before it will be effective in April 2018.

The seminar will be conducted by Denzil Rodrigo (FCA, FCMA), Chairman – Tax Committee of CA Sri Lanka and Director – ECI Tax Chambers Ltd., Hiranthi Ratnayake (B Sc, FCA), Alternate Chairperson – Tax Committee of CA Sri Lanka and Director – PricewaterhouseCoopers and Athula Samaraweera (B Sc, FCA, FCMA, FMAAT), Member of the Tax Committee of CA Sri Lanka who are having decades of experiences in the field of taxation and possessing very good training skills.
