Economic substance: Practical implications and case studies in key offshore jurisdictions

The EU's Economic Substance (ES) laws and regulations have now been in effect for more than three years. Over this time, the regulations have continued to evolve in terms of both the guidance published within jurisdictions and the announcements from relevant supervisory authorities.

Join our upcoming webinars to hear from Vistra’s experts who take the opportunity to recap, reflect and review the current scope, impact, and implications of Economic Substance rules in key offshore jurisdictions, including the BVI and Cayman Islands.
