The National Budget Speech is the most anticipated event on the financial calendar and even more so this year, with the upcoming elections and ongoing economic and systemic challenges which place pressure on balancing the budget. Against this backdrop we await news on whether any significant changes to the tax system will be proposed.

The Annual Budget and Tax Update Seminar will explore the current state of government finances and inform attendees on recently-promulgated and imminent tax amendments. The seminar will unpack the 2018/2019 tax amendments that have been promulgated recently and the amendments proposed in the Budget Speech. These will be explained in a comprehensible manner so that attendees can understand how to apply the amendments and the impact on business and personal finances.

This seminar is a significant, must-attend event on the calendar of tax practitioners, accountants and bookkeepers everywhere.
