About this session

Do you hide behind the desk when your nightmare clients step foot in your office? Does the thought of speaking to HMRC send shivers down your spine? Are you kept awake at night by the prospect of communicating new processes with clients? 

Join us on the spookiest day of the year, to share your accountancy horror stories on this special Hallowe’en edition of Any Answers Live. 

From AML non-compliance to ‘my friend down the pub’ requests, our panel of accountants will gather around the metaphorical campfire and relive some of their worst client stories and reveal ways they’ve dealt with the clients that haunt their practice.

These life-sucking clients can make you feel like you’re selling your soul just by working with them. So with self assessment season just around the corner, this episode will provide plenty of tricks and treats that should help you keep them in line. 

The panel will also shine the lantern on the areas of the profession that makes their skins crawl; whether that’s getting stuck on hold to HMRC, gremlins in their accounting software or wading through the cauldron of receipts. 

You can also get the opportunity of asking your questions and sharing your stories. 

By attending this episode you will learn how to:

  • Deal with clients that keep you up at night
  • Set boundaries in your practice and with your clients
  • Know who your ideal clients are - and aren’t
  • Cope when something goes wrong in your practice

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from your peers and get your questions answered. Secure your place today and come armed with your stories to share
