Canadian-Chinese Professional Accountants Association (CCPAA) is going to hold a workshop on Corporate Tax Preparation (I – Small-Medium Canadian Corporations) on Saturday, June 6th, 2015 in the Fairview Library.
Taxation is a popular topic to any Canadian people. If you would like to get some practical experience, please look at this workshop.
In this workshop, you will have a chance to prepare corporate tax returns and working papers. The experienced supervisor will review your working paper and provide reviewing notes till the work is deliverable. We try to create a working environment the same as in an accounting firm.
It is whole day workshop and won’t be easy going for everybody. As a preparer, you need face the challenges as if you were the first day of working in a tax department. As a supervisor, you need to review all working papers and provide valuable knowledge to your staff. We try to provide all necessary working conditions – from real case/software/instructions to coffee /supplies/lunch, but need your commitment otherwise it is a big waste.
We hope after this workshop that you gain some exposure of corporate tax; help somehow in your own career; get to know some people etc.
