We are delighted to announce that the Kent State University in Ohio, America, will be coming to London during May, and as part of their fact finding trip, will be visiting our offices in Harrow, Middlesex on 24th May for a seminar to give the students an in-depth understanding of how accountancy practices operate within the UK, in direct comparison to tax systems in the United States.
Alan Rajah, Partner at Lawrence Grant, Chartered Accountants, was contacted directly by the University, because of his firm’s long standing association with the Geneva Group International (GGI) – the world’s leading and fastest-growing mulit-disciplinary network of international tax consultants, accountants and solicitors.
Kent State University, which supports around 1,000 students from around 100 countries, is one of the largest regional campuses in the country, with a tradition of students studying accountancy. With many students into their third or fourth year of studies, the visit to our firm, and the presentation they will receive, has been tailored to help and support the students as they look to set up practices of their very own, in the next couple of years.
Alan Rajah says: “We are really looking forward to meeting the students to give them a really interesting insight into how accountancy practices operate within the UK, and feel this is an excellent opportunity to outline our International expertise of the UK’s tax system, and in particular, how it differs from their own.
As many of them will go on to set up their own practice, they will have the added advantage of being able to impart this knowledge when speaking to US companies, which we hope in turn, will encourage multi-lateral business trading opportunities here in the UK and across Europe. We wish them all very successful futures.”
