Our Tax Training Courses

Our tax training always seeks to achieve a balance between theoretical knowledge and practical application of same. Our trainers are actively involved in the application of taxation laws in practice on a daily basis. We understand that simply rehashing the law in different words without any insight and without some indication as to how it applies in practice adds no value, is an insult to most tax professionals and a waste of time for those tax professionals and aspiring tax professionals who strive for excellence.  Our training seeks to add actual value to your professional lives.     

All our tax training modules are completed only once a thorough questionnaire has been completed and passed. Bear in mind –  since our primary goal is to improve skill, our questionnaires may be experienced as slightly more challenging than what you may have become accustomed to. Once the module is completed, you will receive a certificate which you may use to support your CDP hours with the South African Institute of Tax Professionals.
