Talk Title: Don't panic! It's easier than you think - top tips for tackling your tax return last minute
Last minute tips to get your tax return done on time without breaking a sweat, we promise, it's possible!
From Shai: "Mirandus is a 2 women led tax and accounting practice, located in London and Edinburgh, with myself heading the Edinburgh office. We are passionate about helping people realise their potential and tax. Strange combination you might think, but makes perfect sense to us - we love learning and we love people, and let's **** it, both are incredibly complex animals that always keep us guessing, what next?"
...looking forward to seeing you all on the 12th!
Talks run on the 2nd (and 4th due to demand) Tuesday of every month and are 10mins with 5mins for questions. The goal is for people to share something from their business or personal knowledge that can benifit other people in their businesses. It's not about directly promoting a business. Check out the talks we've had already this year below.
ConnectED is a long standing business networking group in Edinburgh. We specialise in friendly and purposeful connections. Occasional talks punctuate a relaxed atmosphere. Come and make your connections. See how you can help others, and how others can help you.
