Tax & Business Services Basics Workshop 2024
All the things we wish we knew when we entered the profession
Fast track the trial & error learning curve for grads
Cut down the review time spent on errors
Active workshop style learning
A Live Instructor Led Workshop
Tax & Business Services Basics tests your team’s knowledge in a hands-on workshop environment. This is active learning where participants prepare a tax return and BAS while working through real client issues.
Cut down the review time spent on errors and help your team think for themselves, dig deeper, and ask the right questions.
Often team members are not confident to ask the questions that really count - or worse, they are simply unaware of the gaps in their knowledge. This workshop aims to change that.

"Excellent workshop! I have learnt so much today, and it has been great/somewhat scary to see how much we can rely on software and the ATO prefills, and we could be making mistakes and be oblivious. I think this training will be pivotal to my future as I endeavour to review and conduct my work with a better understanding of the tax concepts."

What we cover
Tax & Business Services Basics tests your team’s knowledge in a hands-on workshop environment. This is active learning where participants will complete returns and activity statements while working through real client issues.
A Note to Managers...
Tax & Business Services Basics is designed to show your team why technical skills will only take them part of the way. We demonstrate why a job does not start and end with just their technical knowledge.
At each stage we’ll show your team how to avoid bad habits and do it the ‘right way’:
- How to make sure that nothing is missed
- Why they can’t always rely solely on what the client tells them
- How to avoid the spread of bad habits among team members
- Giving your team the confidence to challenge the way things have always been done
- Using a checklist as best practice and to assist you with an ATO audit
- Teaching your team how to resolve an issue
- Why clear and precise workpapers are so important
Then, join us for Part 2 in the Tax & Business Services series, Tax & Business Services Intermediate I.
Craig was previously a business services Director of Hayes Knight in Sydney. His trajectory to Director at a relatively young age is testament to his capacity to understand client needs and get the job completed.
Craig now manages his own practice and continues to provide training to fellow professionals. Having trained CPA Australia members and private organisations, Craig is also a stickler for detail and knows how work needs to be completed.
His goal for this workshop is to ensure that participants walk away with so much more knowledge and practical tips than when they arrived.
Karen has ‘been there and done that’, having trained with the Big Four, initiated her own successful small practice before moving to Hayes Knight as a Partner.
Karen solidified her role as an educator at Webb Martin (Kaplan) before creating her own consultancy.
She has worked her magic on leading accounting practices around the country and is a trainer for leading in-house training company TaxBanter and for Knowledge Shop.
