“The workshop was an experience in itself. I found this workshop really helpful. One of the most enjoyable and informative seminars I have ever attended. I’ve learned a lot of information about taxes and I didn’t only enjoy it but have tried to practice it. And after having practiced the exercises given, I now know all types of taxes and also every exemption .”

 

Thank you AUT for organizing it and very special thanks to the great speakers from the Ministry of Finance! “It’s important to have such workshops especially for students who are not in the workfield yet.
