Accountex regular Rebecca Benneyworth will be returning to the stage to dive into all things tax, with the session ‘Current topical tax issues’. Rebecca will take visitors on a whistle stop tour of key issues and changes, together with the practical implications and advice prompts for clients. 

Also delving into the world of tax is Sharon Cooke, Tax Technical Director from 20:20 Innovation, as she highlights her ‘Top 10 tax considerations for 2024/25’, which will include practical pointers and key takeaways. 

The Bookkeepers Theatre, sponsored by ICB, will have a programme full of seminars specifically catered to the Bookkeeping community. Jo Wood and Zoe Whitman from The 6 Figure Bookkeeper will be delivering the session ‘How to maximise the software you already have’. The panel will discuss how to automate routine tasks, unlock hidden features, and how to build a micro practice with a smaller team. 

Claire Bartlett, from Arden Bookkeeping will be giving the talk ‘The best kept secret – how bookkeepers can profit from accountants’ disregard for everyday tasks’. Claire will look at the benefits of being involved on a daily level with clients, and how this is setting Bookkeepers apart from Accountants.  

The Accountex team are excited to welcome first time speaker Mhari Aitken, Ethics Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute, to the show for the session ‘Addressing the Real Risks of AI.’ The talk promises to cut through the noise surrounding AI, and will set out what the real risks are, and how to address them.
