Monthly Accountants Tech Talk Discussion Forum:

This discussion forum is not a traditional webinar or seminar that is developed by presenters, it is a live and interactive forum to deal with current issues experienced by accounting professionals.

When accountants engage with their clients the challenges and issues they encounter are not siloed into strictly tax or accounting issues for example. The issue that is put on the table is often integrated and involves different viewpoints and perspectives to give a full and well-rounded solution to your client.

Decisions are often made with a focus on an area, for example the tax implications, but as the project or agreement is implemented, other areas in accounting, legislation, BEE may trigger or prove problematic.

These sessions are lively sessions that involve presenters with different skills and specialisation that interrogate, debate and compare aspects of a topic. We will look at the topic or issue from every angle and offer insight to the delegates into the pros and cons, challenges and benefits and potential tripwires that exist. We will look at the differences between the accounting treatment, tax implications and legislation that affect the topic under the spotlight.

These sessions are held monthly and are intended to provide you with solutions and answers to your current issues.
