There will also be an opportunity for attendees to apply for a free hour long ONE-TO-ONE session with Peter at a later date. The aim of the one to one session is to familiarise you with your unique tax obligations and entitlements, and the support available to you to simplify your admin and book-keeping processes. While the one to one sessions are open to all, we would strongly encourage applications from individuals from historically underrepresented groups within the screen sector. These one to one sessions are limited to twelve individuals, and will happen at a date that is convenient to the individual and Peter after April 12th 2022.

The link to apply for the one to one sessions will be sent to all attendees of the general tax workshop and pensions workshop after April 1st.
