It has been a frantic couple of months since my last blog due in no small part to the 3 week holiday I spent in Thailand and Vietnam! Myself and 9 of my colleagues who I have met since joining PwC had a fantastic holiday and have just returned to the office today.
You might recall from my last blog that my Real Estate team were preparing to host the major real estate investors for a tax and development property presentation in our Spencer Dock office. This was my first time attending the meet and greet session which preceded the main event and I met some of our invitees. The presentation itself was very interesting and it was great to see some of the slides I had helped prepare being used for such a big presentation.
On the compliance front, it is the time of the year for preliminary tax payments to be made. At this stage in my personal development, I act as reviewer for the newer members of the team to whom I delegate these tasks. Delegation is very important from both a budgeting perspective for the code and also the experience gained from reviewing other peoples work. I am also now a mentor to a new member of my team which involves taking the general training he receives and making it relevant to his day to day job. I enjoy this responsibility as it challenges me to understand the bigger picture of why we carry out each task.
Finally, the FAE results have just come out and thankfully my colleagues passed.
That’s all for now,
