End of financial year is nearly upon us – what do I need to know for 2020?
Every end of financial year has its own challenges, and this year we have even more than usual!
Among all the additional demands presented by COVID-19, in 2020 it is more important than ever to get the fundamentals of our end of financial year planning in shape. It was already shaping up to be an interesting end of financial year anyway!
In this series of four webinars, well regarded partner Linda Tapiolas will use case studies, based on our files where we have seen things going awry, to explore the key non-COVID-19 things to get right in 2020.
You have the option to register for each webinar individually or register for all four webinars at a discounted rate of $440.00 incl. GST. Register now
