Program's message

In business, tax has a specific definition that is “Tax is both a cost and a law”. As a matter of fact, once something is a cost, it is necessary to find ways to save (including tax cost) and once something is a law, it must be absolutely compliant (especially tax law).

It can be said that no leader does not have worries and frustrations about tax, and no one or no department in the business (including the accounting department) is interested in tax as much as the leader. 

Why? Because tax is related to two vital issues of the business, that is “cost saving” and “law compliance”.

Ideally, every leader should be as knowledgeable about tax and accounting as professionals who have spent several years studying and working on tax and accounting. However, in reality, tax and accounting in the business is not the expertise of the majority of leaders.

So how can leaders feel less stressful about tax while not having expertise on tax and spending years studying tax like an accountant?

The answer lies in the training program “Taxation Knowledge for LEADERS” organized by PACE in collaboration with leading tax experts.

This program is designed specifically for business owners and leaders.

In just 4 sessions, leaders will be equipped with the core knowledge of tax, not to directly do tax accounting, but to know how to direct their accounting department to do tax accounting and prepare tax finalization to achieve both goals of minimizing tax costs and complying with tax laws.

With the method of “consulting training”, this program has been successfully implemented by PACE during the past 20 years with the participation of leaders of domestic and foreign companies.

Program's information


  • Business leaders: business owners, Board of Directors, Board of Members, Board of Managers;
  • Middle managers: Head, Deputy Head of Department / Division of domestic and foreign companies.

This program does not help you become a tax professional or tax consultant, but only helps you “research” the tax from the perspective of a business manager.

  • Understand the basic knowledge of tax and tax reporting system, thereby minimizing tax obligations but still ensuring compliance with the law;
