Sales and Use Tax Workshop:
Roadmap to Your Firm's Practice Model

The market is demanding a sales & use tax advisor.

Build your practice to capitalize on the opportunity.

As businesses struggle to keep pace with the time-consuming demands of changing sales and use tax obligations, there is an urgent need for firms to provide trusted guidance in this complex area. Many CPA firms are seizing the opportunity to expand their trusted advisor role through sales and use tax advisory and compliance services. But what does it take to provide clients with valuable services in a way that is profitable for your firm and doesn’t require an overinvestment in resources? Join our interactive, multi-day workshop to learn exactly what it takes for your firm to reach its sales and use tax potential.

 

What You’ll Learn:

 

  • Understand the landscape of sales and use tax and the reasons that the demand is now so high
  • Identify your starting point on the spectrum of service offerings
  • Know why technology is key to your service line success, and learn when you need more than one software solution
  • Find out why a “Sales and Use Tax Champion” is an essential to staffing development
  • Learn how to price for the value of the services you offer
  • Review the elements of the sales and use tax engagement letter
  • Identify the services that clients need, and learn to position your services to clients

 

Who Should Attend

Firm leaders and staff from accounting firms or outsourcing firms who are looking to launch, expand, and scale their sales and use tax service offering. Attendees should gain support from their firm to commit to building a sales and use tax service line.
