Online Masterclass - Presented By Peter Johnson
Estate Planning for Accountants
7th & 14th September (3 hours of CPD)

Estate Planning is a wide ranging topic that is used by Lawyers, Financial Planners and Accountants. Many clients need estate planning and especially those with business structures as many of their assets will not be dealt with under their will.

Webinar Dates:

Session 1: 12:30 PM, Thursday, 7 September 2023 (AEST)
