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.
