PwC’s Academy is about to begin the new academic year by offering online tax seminars for the first time. The new season offers two extensive training programmes designed for CFOs, accountants, and lawyers: Tax Foundation Course and IFRS for Beginners and Professionals. The two programmes can be completed in full or you can choose only certain modules. This article describes the Tax Foundation Course.
 
The programme
 
The six-month Tax Foundation Course is our most extensive programme of study that offers theoretical and practical insights into Latvian taxes. Entering its 13th season, the Tax Foundation Course for the first time offers an opportunity to acquire knowledge remotely and attend classes from your home or office or any place you find convenient!
 
As usual, you can either go for the full course or complete any of its modules dealing with the taxes you are interested in.

Our online lectures will run weekly on Wednesdays from 14:oo to 17:30:
