They say time waits for no man… and neither does the National Treasury or SARS. Tax practitioners are expected to hit the ground running each time legislation changes or new case law is published. 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.
In this year's update, Prof Arendse will guide you through the key tax revisions, tax-related legal rulings, and other significant developments that have shaped the tax landscape in 2023. The workshop will unpack these tax amendments in a practical and understandable manner, using real-world examples. This will enable you to assess their impact and better understand how these changes may influence your personal finances, your business operations, and your clients.
Attending this event will award you with valuable CPD hours, and more importantly, you will be equipped with the latest information and knowledge, enabling you to add value to your clients by highlighting the prominent changes affecting their businesses and private wealth planning in the foreseeable future. If you attend any CPD event this year, this is the one not to miss.
