On 10 November 1494, Luca Pacioli, an Italian accountant and mathematician, published his first book. This marked the start of International Accounting Day (IAD) where accountants are celebrated globally for the invaluable role they play in the workplace.

This 10 November 2022, Taylor's is celebrating International Accounting Day with a day-long festival filled with knowledge-sharing, networking and fun!

Join the accounting conference, titled 'Renew, Refresh, Reinvent - The New Hybrid Accountant & Workplace', to discover how accountants are evolving to adapt to the fast-moving changes in the finance world, and how you can seize the emerging opportunities to contribute to building sustainable businesses.

Supported by the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA), the event will also feature The Malaysian Institute Of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA) as a Diamond partner plus another 14 esteemed corporate sponsors.
