Anderson Anderson & Brown to talk at Norwegian Oil & Gas event

INTSOK and Scottish Enterprise’s international development arm, Scottish Development International (SDI) are to jointly host a Scotland – Norway network meeting in Stavanger on 18 February. The main purpose of the event, which will host around sixty Norwegian and UK companies, is to introduce a network of support and provide information to Norwegian companies who may be looking to enter the Scottish Oil & Gas market. Topics including project opportunities, market trends and how to do business in Scotland will be covered on the day and those attending will be able to meet some of the oil and gas industry’s key players.

Representatives from INTSOK, SDI, Statoil, BP, Wood Group, Aker Solutions and Innovation Norway will be speaking at the event and Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of Aberdeen’s leading independent firms of Chartered Accountants, has announced that they have also been invited to present by SDI and will provide an overview of the UK taxation system to the delegates during the day’s presentations.

Phil Stirling, SDI, commented “This event is a marvellous opportunity to showcase Scotland’s oil and gas industry and to encourage our Norwegian neighbours to come to Scotland and do business here and we are delighted to have attracted so many representatives from top class Scottish companies to present on the day. We invited AAB to present as we were impressed with their knowledge of international tax matters in general and with their vast experience of the UK and Norwegian tax systems in particular.”

Kevin Mann, International Tax Partner at AAB who will be presenting at the event, added “We were delighted to be invited by SDI to present at the Scotland-Norway event. International expansion by businesses, whether performing one-off projects overseas or setting up a permanent office in a foreign country, poses significant tax issues and uncertainties that must be resolved. We are very flattered to have been given the opportunity to present at the Stavanger event and to introduce AAB and the support which our experienced international tax team can provide to any Norwegian companies who may be looking to enter the Scottish Oil & Gas market.”
