Retail and consumer products are subject to increasingly complex legislation at all levels. For the first time, RetailDetail brings together legal experts and retailers with concrete cases on sales promotions and VAT, data analytics, the circular economy and more.
This free event is brought to you by Deloitte.
Introduction and Sales promotions & VAT – Challenges & opportunities
Are you familiar with the VAT implications and hidden VAT costs of sales promotions? Did you know that you may be able to recover VAT costs from past years? Nathalie Wittock, Director Indirect Tax Deloitte Legal, and Glenn Hansen, Director Deloitte Legal, will share the ins and outs of sales promotions and some general legal/contractual concerns that may be essential in determining their VAT treatment.
Data in Retail
What are some of the new trends in data analytics in retail? Laurent Mainil from Crunch Analytics will share his insights, while Matthias Vierstraete from Deloitte Legal will inform you in a practical and pragmatic way about some of the legal concerns when dealing with data (analytics). Both personal and non-personal data will be discussed.
A sustainable circular economy for retail and consumer products
Are you moving, or considering a move, toward sustainable circular economy business models? Explore the legal and tax issues with Dominique Vanherck, Senior Associate Climate & Energy Deloitte Legal, and Kathleen De hornois, Partner Deloitte Legal.
The role of taxes in your sustainability journey
Making your organization and operations more sustainable is on everyone’s agenda these days. These actions and investments are not free, but financial support is available. Virginie De Brabandt and Roel De Mondt, senior managers at Deloitte Global Business Tax, give an overview of the available subsidies and incentives in Flanders and of the possible (and perhaps unexpected) tax impact of sustainability as a (main) driver.
