Event details

Following a number of difficult years for business leaders, the global, and UK, political and economic landscapes continue to be complex and uncertain. This inevitably adds to the challenges, and opportunities, management teams must seek to navigate every day.

For finance leaders, like you, that means ensuring you understand the impact of key changes across tax and financial reporting, as well as keeping a watchful eye on emerging issues and best practice in governance.

We are therefore delighted to invite you to our hugely popular annual Insights for Finance Leaders seminar, where our panel of experts will lead discussions on:

  • Current and future changes to accounting and corporate reporting standards, with a focus on issues for December 2023 year ends onwards
  • Key developments across the tax landscape, including corporate taxes, VAT, employment taxes, and more. We will share what businesses are doing to optimise their tax position and mitigate tax risk at a time when HMRC are raising targeted enquiries
  • The regulatory and social pressures on the prevention and detection of fraud, the impact of the failure to prevent offence, and the broader trends we are seeing in corporate fraud

There will be time for networking afterwards where lunch will be provided.

We hope you can join us in person. Please feel free to forward this on to your colleagues.
