Join us for our Finance Director (CPD verified) Update.
These webinars take place every 6 months and focus on the latest developments in tax, financial reporting and company law and are specifically designed to meet the needs of Finance Directors and CFOs where good all-round knowledge of the financial reporting, governance and tax is a necessity.
The session is not just designed to give you 3 hours of verifiable CPD but will also help you navigate the many complex issues you and your teams will encounter.
The course is intended not only to alert you to regulatory changes, but to highlight points which can be used in practice. It is particularly aimed at those involved with businesses using IFRS and slightly larger entities using UK GAAP either under FRS101 or FRS102 but will be relevant to all FDs and CFOs.
In this session our specialists will discuss:
- UK Company Law & accounting standards updates
- Post Brexit impact on indirect taxes
- Sustainability: Evolving legislation & reporting requirements
- Corporate Tax updates
