If you hire an accountant you don’t have to worry about making costly tax mistakes or being audited. Accountants can also analyze your last three tax returns and make sure you benefited from every tax reduction possible. I bet you didn’t know you have three years to make any changes to your taxes after they have been filed.

Companies involving work in the U.S. will need accountants who know about IRS and experience completing U.S. tax forms. Do you own an exporting business?

For those accountants who are geographically remote – it can be difficult to attend a traditional CPD course and therefore online training can fulfil all of their CPD requirements. At the same time, I still believe in the value of traditional CPD courses and face-to-face discussion. Like a balanced diet online CPD is best used to top-up or complement traditional training.
