About this event

This event follows on from the workshop earlier in the year, and will offer delegates practical demonstration of key tax calculations and how to effectively plan and manage tax issues. 

The ongoing financial climate is placing an increased pressure on finances and the generation of savings, with many organisations setting up trading companies. Tax considerations are very important, as they add to the cost base of a company compared to in-house service delivery. 

The event will demonstrate, using practical examples, the differences between accounting profits and taxable profits. Delegates will then be taken through the corporation tax calculations. There will also be an explanation of VAT, group structures, capital gains and gift aid.

Who should attend?

The workshop has been developed to support accountants, tax advisers, commercial directors, finance practitioners, solicitors, project managers and auditors who are involved ensuring that the authority makes the correct tax calculations.
