There is also sudo systemsetup -settimezone GMT.
Not sure what difference it makes …

Does removing the link revert it back?

@j-walker23 just setting it in the system preferences updates the symlink, I verified it.

@deepeeess Thanks for the response! I was looking for a easy progrmatic way to flip back and forth. Which I'm sure there is.

I verified that selecting UTC - United Kingdom in the Date & Time panel on macOS 10.14.6 really does set it to UTC and not to UK time, which could be UTC+1 during daylight savings.

Hi all! I am having issues with meeting invites from my client in Dubai and I live in UK. While the invite says 4PM AST (Arabian Standard Time) is shows up at 2PM UK time, but should be 1PM UK time. Any fix you can suggest?
