Training Program

In order to ensure our staff keep up to date with forever changing legislation our firm uses external training professionals to provide in-house training on a regular basis. The training sessions are designed to alert staff to current tax changes, explain the implications of the changes in a practical manner and provide an awareness of any pitfalls and opportunities. In addition, special topics are covered to reinforce practical examples.

We also actively support and encourage our people to undertake relevant further studies and offer assistance with study costs and time. We consider this to be crucial not only for your personal development but for the continued growth of services we are able to offer our clients.
