A breakfast seminar discussing making tax digital ahead of its delayed implementation for non-profit organisations and trusts in October 2019

Optimise your accounting systems and become more efficient in how your charity handles its tax affairs. Over this morning tax specialists from across the sector will guide you through the process of switching to digital accounting. Gain first-hand advice from charities ahead of the curve in making the digital transition. Take the opportunity to ask questions and gain advice from our expert speakers.
