Upcoming holidays let us look at the ending year.

2017 has been a year of growth for our organization, which also reflected in a series of events and initiatives that involved all our business lines.

Among the most relevant conferences organized by Bernoni Grant Thornton, we point out the following:

  • conferences held on Brexit, aimed at identifying challenges and opportunities related to the delicate exit process of the United Kingdom from the European Union. The conferences were held in March and May in Rome, in collaboration, respectively, with Unindustria and with the British Chamber of Commerce for Italy;
  • a conference on opportunities and tax risks for multinational companies, held in March and organized by Bernoni Grant Thornton in collaboration with Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan. The event, which saw the participation of representatives of the European Commission, of OECD and of the Italian Revenue Office, anticipated many international tax issues which were then the “Leitmotiv” during 2017, in the light of the implementation process of BEPS actions by OECD and by single countries;
  • a conference held in April 2017 at Accademia della Guardia di Finanza (Italian tax police academy) in Castelporziano (Rome), concerning tax and accounting assessments in case of digital administration, which is an increasingly topical issue due to the constant technology development and the increasing needs to prevent evasion;
  • the 8th edition of the Good Energy Award, the Italian award dedicated to upstanding companies within sustainability and energy saving, also took place in 2017;
  • the launch of OPEN Innovative PMI, the first Italian multidisciplinary project conceived and developed by Bernoni Grant Thornton and entirely dedicated to innovative SMEs; on 16 November 2017, in Rome, a thematic conference was held at the Department of Regional Affairs of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers and focussed on incentives for innovative SMEs and those provided for by the Industry 4.0 government plan; on the same day, the prize-giving ceremony of the Open Innovative PMI Award took place, electing the best innovative SMEs in the fields of research, internationalization and women in business.

Considering that many of the issues being the subject of the events above are still present, please feel free to contact us for any further information or insight you may need.

To conclude this very full year, we would like to wish you all a joyful Christmas and prosperous New Year!
