Government support and a favourable regulatory environment are encouraging Islamic banks to set up operations in the UK. The establishment of an enabling fiscal and regulatory framework in the UK for Islamic Finance since 2003 has resulted in a number of advantages:
• The removal of double tax on Islamic mortgages and the extension of tax relief on Islamic mortgages to companies, as well as to individuals;
• Reform of arrangements for issues of debt so that returns and income payments can be treated as if it were interest. This makes London a more attractive location for issuing and trading sukuk;
• Initiatives by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) to ensure that regulatory treatment of Islamic Finance are consistent with its statutory objectives and principles. Western banks are also meeting the demand for Islamic Finance Services through the expansion of their Islamic Finance offering.

World Islamic Finance Conference establishes unique platform for all financial and banking experts in order to discuss the latest challenges in finance industry.
