Here's a taster of what you can look forward to:

Trust in tax

Glenn Collins, head of policy, technical and strategic engagement at ACCA
Jason Piper, senior subject manager, taxation & business law at ACCA

Join ACCA and HMRC as they unpick how taxpayers perceive the existing systems, and who is best trusted to help improve those perceptions, and who will be fundamental in building enhanced trust and engagement?

Managing stress and preventing burnout in the workplace

Liam Reynolds, workplace mental health officer, Mental Health UK 

This presentation explores the impact stress and burnout can have on individuals within the workplace, and the role organisations can play to provide psychological stability to employees during turbulent times. It's useful for individuals looking to ensure they stay well at work, support their colleagues, and avoid burnout.

Tax untangled – top tax issues for 2023/24

Sharon Cook, technical director, 20:20 Innovation 

Sharon will review two of the most topical and challenging changes in taxation that practitioners are grappling with right now: 

  • unincorporated businesses – the change in basis periods, the 2023/24 transition and prior planning opportunities. 
  • for companies – the new corporation tax rates and the need to identify associated companies via family and other relationships. 

She will also consider tax ethics, in a world where AI is everywhere.

Accountex Summit Manchester is taking place at Manchester Central on 19 September 2023.
