Practical, engaging, cost effective online CPD

The UK tax and accounting environment is constantly changing to reflect the economic picture. For accountants, this requires ongoing research and analysis to keep up to date with the latest tax changes and to ensure you comply with accounting standards.

PTP provide this updating process via our live online seminars and on demand courses.

Online tax and accounting CPD

  • Live online seminars – run as half-day live seminars providing in-depth analysis and practical tips across each topic.
  • Live online bitesize seminars – 1¼ hours seminars run during the spring and autumn to give relevant updates on topical areas.
  • On demand courses – pre-recorded practical CPD training, allowing you to watch at a time that is convenient for you.

Live online and bitesize seminars

Our live online and bitesize seminars are written and presented in a way that you will find interesting and engaging while providing practical solutions to everyday tax and accounting issues. We encourage online delegate participation so that real-life issues and examples can be discussed.

Half-day seminar prices start from less than £50+VAT per delegate per seminar if bought as part of a package, with our bitesize courses priced from just £29+VAT per delegate.

On demand courses

Our on demand courses are a range of dynamic CPD training products designed to give you practical training when you want it. Our flagship on demand courses are TAXtv and AccountingTV, which give a unique training experience in the style of a TV programme. TAXtv is available monthly while AccountingTV is a quarterly product. Free episodes of both programmes are available to download, so you can try before you buy.

In addition, we also have GDPR and Money Laundering Reporting online courses. These will make sure you comply with the relevant legislation. Each course takes you through the relevant regulations and how they apply to your practice, plus there is also an online test that you and your staff can take to demonstrate your understanding of the relevant laws.

You can watch them on your own or as part of a group, stopping each programme to take notes or discuss relevant points with others.

Prices for our on demand courses start from as little as £25+VAT per single licence.

PTP has created a unique training product that helps accountants keep up to date with their CPD. The format also provides a valuable reference source that can be accessed throughout the subscription.

TAXtv (monthly) or AccountingTV (quarterly) are on demand online training resources which discuss the latest tax and accounting news. The one hour TV style programmes provide viewers with relevant discussions and updates, plus practical advice and tips that can be useful when advising clients.

The programmes are one of the most topical and adaptable forms of CPD available to accountants working within the UK tax and accounting system.

Flexible training

The TV programmes offer a flexible way to deliver CPD training. Users can download and watch the programmes on a choice of devices and at a time to suit them. Alternatively, tax or accounts teams can watch together, pause the programme, discuss the points raised and then move on to the next section.

TAXtv first launched 12 years ago, and many early adopters are still using the programmes as a vital part of their ongoing CPD.

Pricing and FREE episodes

Available on separate annual subscriptions, prices start from less than £50+VAT per office for AccountingTV and less than £100+VAT per office for TAXtv.

Sign up for a free episode to experience the programmes first-hand.
