Staying up to date and keeping your clients compliant can be stressful for any tax professional. Luckily, The Tax Faculty’s Annual Tax Update provides you with a unique opportunity to bring yourself up to speed on the significant developments of the past year, with in-person and webinar events succinctly packaged into easy-to-follow four-hour sessions, presented by Prof Jackie Arendse.
