AAT shine a spotlight on Scottish salaries
We’ve just published our first ever AAT salary survey and although there may be less AAT students and members north of the border, we’re holding our own when it comes to earning potential.
Coming second only to London in terms of student and member salaries, it’s great to see that the skills AAT staff bring to the workplace are valued highly.
- CPD event – Scotland
As part of our CPD programme for members in Scotland, we are pleased to announce a series of co-hosted tax events in Aberdeen.
The programme provides you with the opportunity to network with other accountancy professionals in the area and discuss best practice on key areas of tax.
