Accounting and Taxation for Practitioners

Short Overview
Traditionally, Accounting and Taxation are two closely interconnected subjects, with particular importance for the management of businesses and organizations and for making sound business decisions. At the same time, the two subjects offer a significant opportunity for employment, providing high job security. Recognizing the lack of personnel with adequate training in both subjects, the Program offers a balanced and comprehensive mix of knowledge in both subjects, and has been enriched with related subjects that a professional in the field is called upon to know.
Learning Goals
The Seminar aims to provide professionals with comprehensive and applied knowledge in Accounting and Taxation, so that they are able to safely respond to the specificities of the modern business environment and the complexity of an ever-changing regulatory framework. Upon completion of the course, trainees will be able to handle these issues effectively and safely, and provide documented solutions and advice, achieving rapid professional development.
Program Value
The Program is designed for professionals (accountants, tax experts, tax consultants) and for those who, having a suitable educational background, aim to enter the profession. In particular, the Program responds to the needs of those who wish to complete or quickly acquire comprehensive knowledge, and the ability to apply it practically, in the range of subjects that Accountants and Tax Professionals deal with. By successfully completing this Program, the trainees will have acquired all the required knowledge and skills to enter the labor market in audit firms (accounting services - bookkeeping, tax department, audit), in the finance / accounting department of companies and organizations, or to start as free-lance tax accountants – tax consultants.
