Event Details

Accounting is the art of communicating business transactions to internal and external user of an organization. While taxation is the lifeblood of any sovereign country, in which the government of that sovereign country levies to its citizens and resident aliens taxes to defray itself of expenses to protect and uphold the sovereignty of the said country, both of these fields have always been disconnected with each other, both play an important role in any organization wishing to partake the economies that a sovereign country provides.

In addition, the new Tax Reform Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) of the Duterte Government provides new relief and issues for Taxpayers this 2018.
