U.K. Treasury Outlines Potential Changes to Make Funds Regime More Attractive

In January 2021, Her Majesty’s Treasury (HMT) issued a call for input (Call for Input) in connection with a broad review of the U.K.’s funds regime. The 38 questions contained in the Call for Input focused on three broad areas, including the U.K. approaches to taxation and regulation of funds, as well as opportunities for wider reform.
