Yesterday we looked at what to expect on day one of the Annual AAT Conference; today we delve into Friday’s events, and how you can get career insights from the conference experts
Highlights for Friday include an interactive session on Tax hosted by AAT Policy Advisor Brian Palmer. ‘Making Tax Digital’ will advise the audience on the opportunities and challenges facing businesses in relation to the government’s tax modernisation scheme. Friday will also see this year’s ‘hot topic’ covered: the ‘VAT Update and The Impact of Brexit’ conference will be hosted by VAT specialist Vaughn Chown and will look at how to prepare for the upcoming changes while forecasting potential future developments.
As well as providing leading industry insight, the conference will give guests the opportunity to find out what skills will be in demand in 2017 directly from accounting experts. Members of the AAT team will also be on hand to listen to feedback regarding the conference and their qualifications; it’s an excellent opportunity to help shape the future of the AAT.
If it sounds like all work and no play, don’t worry: there will be plenty of time dedicated to formal and informal networking, and the AAT Professional Member Awards ceremony will give members plenty of opportunities to celebrate. Those interested can book tickets through the AAT website. Places fill up quickly; around 90% of visitors for the 2016 conference were attendees in 2015, so be sure to book soon.
