In an ever-changing workplace and multi-national economic environment, it is the responsibility of tax practitioners and financial professionals to remain current with up-to-the minute and detailed knowledge of international tax law matters. The economic events taking place in the world has put increasing pressure on tax and financial policies of governments, specifically including the NAFTA countries that has led to numerous changes and modifications in the law.

These ongoing changes in the law and policy demand that tax and financial professionals proactively seek out the newest developments and tax compliance strategies.
