On the 27 September 2021, our Head of Advisory Thomas Boyd and Advisory Partnership Manager Steve Whelan hosted a webinar in partnership with the IFA to discuss how accountants, business consultants and practitioners could build a digital future by adding funding to your advisory proposition.
As a recap, the webinar covered:
The Advisory Lifecycle
Advisory, or advisory accounting, refers to an accounting approach that provides accounting services alongside value-added services like strategy and consulting
Advisory, is one of the three levels of the accounting pyramid that most accountants offer
Why you should accelerate your transition towards becoming an advisory led firm
