As you may know the demand for tax and related services such as tax planning, compliance, dispute resolutions and more is rapidly growing. Although we as CPAs have been providing tax and related services for many years our marketing challenge is to ensure that our clients, existing and prospective, whether internal or external know that CPA tax practitioners and advisers are uniquely qualified and ready to help them.
Whether you’re a sole proprietor, run a mid-sized practice or advise clients at a large firm, ICPAK has organized a one-day workshop to provide a platform on which to debate and discuss the key elements of a Tax Practitioner Toolkit that will help you be a leader in tax service and give you the tools you need to educate and engage clients, remind them of your year-round expertise and develop your unique value to prospective clients
