Research shows that 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that don’t yet exist. Is this a scary thought or do you believe it is exciting? The PwC Finance Effectiveness Benchmark Report 2017[TW1] suggests that finance and tax professionals spend 50% of their time gathering data, rather than analysing it. How can accounting and tax professionals become more effective and efficient in performing mundane tasks, so that we can rather focus our time and energy on adding value to clients and businesses?

This event will cover the following aspects:

  • Creating a basic awareness and understanding of the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on the accounting and tax profession.
  • A discussion of how tax professionals should reskill and upskill themselves, not only to avoid becoming redundant, but to grow, thrive and excel in an environment that is constantly changing and evolving.
  • Exploring tools such as Robotic Process Automation that could assist tax professionals in performing daily tasks – where to find these tools and how to use them.
