Friends, ‘Change is one of the biggest challenges for tax professionals’. It takes careful planning to ensure the time spent keeping up with technical changes does not detract from time spent advising clients. Relentless changes have made the work of tax professional very challenging and demanding. In the modern era, the tax profession faces a new set of challenges. If we work together and focus on what the future needs to look like and how we are going to achieve it, there shall be smooth road to success. ‘The pace of change is really quite staggering. But the new technologies open up all sorts of new ways of working, which should lead to greater process efficiencies’.
