AdvantageBC’s Technical Seminar takes place at the end of May each year with a focus on the audit process. Members of the Audit team from the Ministry of Finance will present information about the audit process, covering the basics in terms of paperwork required, as well as the more complex issues relating to compliance, where errors could result in penalties down the road. A successful audit is a key consideration and insures that registrants are maximizing their claim.

A team of professional advisors from KPMG LLP, Ernst & Young LLP, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and Deloitte will be on hand to provide guidance on some of the technical aspects of the program. A panel discussion will be held and members are encouraged to come with any questions they may have.

This seminar is valuable for any member who is claiming a refund or planning to claim one. This is an excellent opportunity especially for new members, but members who are familiar with the audit process can also gain insight into how the IBA audit is processed. You will have an opportunity to learn from the issues that other members have encountered.

The AdvantageBC Technical Seminar should qualify for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits. Attendees receive the following certificate of completion: International Business Activity Act Regulation and Administrative Compliance Requirements.
