MHA’s Finance Director update courses are designed to keep your technical knowledge up to date to help you comply with the everchanging regulatory environment in the worlds of Financial Reporting and Tax.

With expert speakers from across MHA, this event will focus on the latest developments in Tax, Brexit, sustainability and the evolving legislation and reporting requirements, as well as an update on UK company law and accounting standards.

The course is intended not only to alert you to regulatory changes, but to highlight points which can be used in practice. It is particularly aimed at those involved with businesses using IFRS and slightly larger entities using UK GAAP either under FRS101 or FRS102 but will be relevant to all FDs and CFOs.

The session will give you 3 hours of verifiable CPD and help you navigate the many complex issues you and your teams will encounter.

Who should attend?

This course is specifically designed to meet the needs of Finance Directors and CFO’s where good all-round knowledge of financial
reporting, governance and tax is a necessity.


These workshops are free of charge for Finance Directors and CFO’s, however places are limited. Please register early to avoid disappointment.
