ICAEW Tax Faculty CPD Club
This year, we expect the flow of new legislation, HMRC guidance and case law decisions to gather pace, making it even harder for tax practitioners to keep up with the changes.
The Tax Faculty CPD Club brings you all the benefits of Tolley’s CPD seminar programme plus two additional lunch briefings with Rebecca Benneyworth – at no extra cost. The briefings will cover HMRC, their relationship with agents, and developments in the agent field. You’ll be able to quiz Rebecca and representatives of the Tax Faculty on these matters.
