Nearly 500 business owners, financial executives and accounting professionals gained the updates and insights to prepare for a successful new year at RKL’s annual Tax and A&A Update.
Held December 12 at the Lancaster County Convention Center, the 2017 installment of the region’s most anticipated CPE event provided attendees with valued continuing professional education credits and networking opportunities with RKL advisors and leaders from a wide range of business types, sizes and industries.
The full-day agenda kicked off with an economic update from Anirban Basu, Chairman and CEO of Sage Policy Group Inc., who shared insights into the global, national and regional economies and facilitated an always entertaining understanding of critical aspects of the economy, such as the performance of financial, labor and real estate markets.
RKL tax advisors then offered attendees the most up-to-date information on federal tax legislation, from both the business and individual perspective, and highlighted planning opportunities for the year ahead. On a state level, key tax rates, credits and incentives were discussed, as well as initiatives undertaken by the PA Department of Revenue. The afternoon session focused on accounting updates, including strategies to manage banking relationships in a complex environment and an overview of recently issued and currently proposed accounting standards and how they could impact businesses and organizations.
To show appreciation for the strong support of its clients and friends, RKL held a variety of trivia and prize drawings throughout the day, featuring prizes ranging from local retail gift cards to an Apple Watch to a vacation voucher, just in time for the holidays. After a productive day of education, attendees enjoyed a cocktail hour to conclude the event on a festive note.
