Course Overview

Tax and legal compliance are imperative for organizations performance. However, in developing countries it is a big challenge. Organizations waste much resources by non-compliance to tax laws which causes them to be charged huge penalties and fines. Compliance updates are imperative for keeping accountants, directors and individuals involved in financial functions of the organization. This course will therefore build and strengthen compliance behaviour by participating organizations.

Course Objective

This course responds to the challenges of ensuring sound tax management practices that will lead to realization of organizational goals and success and avoid unnecessary non-compliance fines and penalties.
