Note these are purely self-study products and there will be no access to instructors for questions and answers. Each title qualifies for verifiable CPD hours upon successful completion of a quiz at the end of the session.

Because the video recordings are taken from live seminars, the information presented is up-to-date at the time of recording. While we make an effort to keep our inventory updated and seasonally remove outdated titles, changes in accounting, tax and other acts and legislations can happen at any time. It is up to the purchaser to take note of the recording date, and to determine for themselves whether the recorded video is still relevant to their needs. 

As much as people tend to think otherwise, memory is not infallible. Fortunately, tax professionals have the opportunity to relearn foundational material in the context of new changes (and we know how often the government loves to change things). This two-day seminar in corporate tax updates technical and tax planning issues for corporations, thus providing practitioners with a refresher on these topics. Although the seminar reviews taxation for public and private corporations, the session primary focuses on the taxation of private companies. You will receive detailed course materials covering a broad range of corporate tax topics, which serve as an invaluable future reference. In addition to receiving presentation material, you will work through case studies covering a wide range of corporate tax issues, collaborate with their peers, and share issues impacting their clients.

This seminar not only provides a review of issues relating to corporate taxpayers but also expands your knowledge about recent changes. Participants working with these taxpayers require an understanding of corporate tax legislation and its proper application.
