The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce will hold a seminar on the newly-passed Inland Revenue Act today at its auditorium at 2.00 p.m. with State Minister of Finance Eran Wickramaratne attending as the keynote speaker.

The seminar will help the private sector gain a clear understanding of the income tax implications of the new act.

The State Minister is expected to explain to the audience the rationale for the new tax bill, overall tax reforms agenda and the Government’s plans for fiscal consolidation and economic growth.

His address will be followed by presentations from Ernst & Young Partner Sulaiman Nisthar and KPMG Partner-Tax Shamila Jayasekera.

The duo will later join in for a panel discussion which will also include Ministry of Finance Deputy Secretary S.R. Attygalle, Department of Inland Revenue Commissioner General Ivan Dissananayake and Ministry of Finance Tax Policy Advisor Thanuja Perera.

Ceylon Chamber of Commerce Taxation Steering Committee Chairman Duminda Hulangamuwa will moderate the discussion, while the welcome address will be delivered by Ceylon Chamber of Commerce Chief Economist Anushka Wijesinha.
