| Des O'Neill

A big issue for accountants is finding the time to get their CPD done. That is why our platform delivers a combination of live events for those that enjoy the interaction, but also on-demand for people who want to fit in CPD around their busy schedules.

For the last 20 years, I have provided CPD training to thousands of firms and thousands of businesses. Since it was launched in 2020, has been bringing CPD to accountants in practice just like you. We cover all the core competency areas; tax, financial reporting, auditing, general law and regulations, money laundering, corporate finance and all the component elements of income tax.

As an accountant just like you, I got fed up with doing CPD for the sake of doing it. I wanted to do it to acquire practical knowledge that I could apply to help my business and my clients. The upcoming free 2-Part Autumn Tax Masterclass is a super opportunity to not only earn free CPD, but to learn from the best of the best in the tax world.

Below is some information about these upcoming free sessions. You can register for these free sessions of our 2-Part Autumn Tax Masterclass here.
