MYOB’s Tax e-Seminars are the most convenient way for accountants to bone up on tax changes, but you’ll want to get in quick. Early bird deals end 31 May.
MYOB’s simple, streamlined Tax e-Seminars have returned once again to help accountants stay abreast of Australia’s changing compliance landscape.
For accountants, staying on top of compliance changes is par for the course. But with an ever-increasing amount of new legislation or changes to existing policy, making sure you and your clients stay on the right side of the ATO can seem like a formidable challenge.
Luckily, learning about complex taxation regulation no longer requires accountants to travel long distances to receive training over grueling day-long or multi-day sessions.
With the help of the internet and contemporary e-learning platforms, MYOB is able to deliver this information in an on-demand format, meaning you can learn about tax changes when you want, where you want.
And, as we learned last year, that flexibility is helping to keep the cost of training down for accountants all over the country.
Speaking with The Pulse, Financial Coach and Accountant for Healthy Business Finances, Stacey Price said that training and development has risen to become the second highest cost to her business after wages. And a lot of that has to do with travel times involved.
“All our staff work remotely in four different locations,” Price said. “The sooner education and academic providers can offer genuinely flexible training, the better.”
“There are plenty of CBD-based training options you could attend in a lunch break, but when you’re based outside the CBD it becomes more difficult.”
Luckily, MYOB’s Tax e-Seminars offer exactly the type of flexibility you’re after.
This year has seen a number of regulatory changes coming into effect, including Single Touch Payroll (STP) for all businesses, changes to the Taxable Payments Reporting System (TPRS) and more.
But perhaps of more interest to tax agents will be the significant reforms made to Deduction Schedules, and how this will be handled by their Tax Return Preparation software.
Well, all these issues and more are covered in the Tax e-Seminar syllabus for 2019, including best practice guidance on how to help your clients navigate the change.
Even better, you’ll be able to pick and choose from the information available according to what you most want to learn.
“Previous attendees of our Tax e-Seminars always tell us how much they enjoy the freedom and flexibility that the format offers,” said Simon Dennis, MYOB Head of Partnerships.
“They’re able to watch the sessions as many times as they like, pausing and replaying sections to make sure they’re across every detail.
“We’ve also included a feature where attendees can ask questions via live chat on specific days, offering all the benefits of a live information session.”
