The Asian Consulting Group continued to make tax education more accessible as it signed a Memorandum of Agreement with TORA Online Development, Inc. on January 28, 2019. Under the agreement, ACG will provide courses eligible for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points to TORA’s online platform, CPDPortal.
The Philippine Tax Whiz Mon Abrea represented ACG as its Founding Chairman while Mr. Luke T. Jickain, Chief Executive Office of TORA Online Development, Inc. represented TORA and CPDPortal.
As a social enterprise, one of ACG’s advocacies is the promotion of tax education under its Tax Whiz Academy program. The lack of tax education is a leading cause of failed compliance and expensive penalties. By addressing this issue, ACG helps taxpayers avoid violations and save more on tax payments.
Under the Tax Whiz Academy program, ACG holds Exclusive Tax Coaching Sessions (ETC), Executive Tax Briefings (ETB), TRAIN seminars, and its monthly Open House. Notably, its monthly Open House consists of a free tax seminar.
Those that cannot attend ACG’s programs can now do so online.
With CPDPortal, ACG’s Tax Whiz Academy gains an online platform to continue promoting not just tax education, but also courses that help our professionals. CPDPortal aims to make such courses accessible and more convenient.
The problem with current CPD courses is that they are often expensive and inconvenient, often requiring you to follow a select schedule. With CPDPortal, professionals can continue to do so whenever they want. As an online platform, users can easily pick which courses they need and, unlike most seminars, CPDPortal’s courses are inexpensive and will provide a cheaper alternative for CPD points.
This will work hand-in-hand with ACG’s seminars. On February 15, the Asian Consulting Group will be holding its monthly Open House. As part of its programs, ACG’s tax experts will hold a tax seminar on ITR Filing and Common Tax Violations. Interested taxpayers can register now here.
