You can now book a place for a series of webinars and live, online events aimed at bringing you up to speed on topical tax issues and the latest industry changes.

If you work in the tax or accountancy sector, you can grow your knowledge and skills by attending the informative and useful sessions – which start next week. They will help ensure you know and understand recent rule changes in the ever-evolving tax landscape, so you can deliver a trusted, reliable service for your clients.

The events range from an autumn/winter tax round-up to a session focusing on taxation for the self-employed. There will also be an event covering offshore tax and trusts, and one about capital taxes. And because they’re being held online, you can take part from the comfort of your home or office.

Hosted by MBL (Management, Business, Law) – which provides learning and development for professional service firms – the first session opens on Friday 12 November 2021.

Boost your tax knowhow

If you book a place at one or all the sessions, you’ll benefit from the expertise of Stephanie Churchill, a taxation professional with more than 25 years’ industry experience, who will be the speaker at each session. Stephanie – the founder and joint owner of Churchill Taxation – is skilled at translating complex tax issues into plain English.
