In the run-up to our first Virtual Tax Partner Practical Tax conference (held on 12/13 October 2021), we are holding a series of short 'tax workouts' to get you tax-fit for conference time. Each workout will take place online and each session will last 20-25 minutes. Places on each session are limited given on a first-come-first-served basis. 

Our unique tax conference builds on the many tax FAQs that you submit to the Virtual Tax Partner support service (on our sister site as well as providing specialist material and an all-around OMB tax update.

  • Participants who purchase 'early bird' conference tickets will be given priority places on our bonus workouts.

Once you buy a ticket we will contact you personally to talk through your selection of Workouts and confirm diary dates.
