Tax Planning – Making a Start
There is nothing wrong with being a novice tax planner (it’s actually very exciting taking the challenge and starting the journey to learn something new). But the most important thing we need to do is just follow Plato’s advice and make a start. Over time we will build our skills and hopefully move to at least competent (and beyond).
Realistically, not everyone will achieve the expert stage, and that is perfectly normal and just life. The sad reality is we most likely won’t be a billionaire or the number one tennis player in the world either. But by utilising tax planning tools and following a tax planning training programme we should be able to quickly move to the competent stage.
