The Accounting and Finance Show Advisory Board is comprised of the industry’s most credible and distinguished finance leaders.
Our Advisory Board counsels The Accounting and Finance Show on the strategic direction for the conference programme, provides insight into the research community and ensures only the highest quality of content is being delivered to attendees each year.
Preparing for VAT auditing
2018 saw the introduction of VAT to UAE. One year on and the next challenge highlighted by our advisory board is the roll out of VAT audits on organisations. To help attendees overcome this challenge we have included several VAT workshops and panel discussions in our programme.
The rise of automation and AI
Automation within accounting and finance is becoming much more prevalent. However an important point which was shared by our advisory board is that regardless of the level of automation, a human interface will always play an important part. Our agenda includes several sessions to help attendees understand how to combine automation with current infrastructure to drive process optimisation.
The cross industry VAT principles
Whilst VAT may be implemented differently across GCC, our advisory board explained that the variance in legislation will come mostly from industries rather than regions. The Accounting and Finance show will bring together key players from different industries to compare VAT similarities and differences and find out what different industries can learn from each other.
