RIBA Business Skills Webinar Series: Module One

​​The RIBA has been exploring ways in which RIBA CPD seminars and courses can be made available digitally to the membership, in the UK and internationally. The RIBA is happy to be able to offer 1hrs and 1.25hrs webinars on business skills, helping you succeed in business.

Module One: Architect's guide to tax

In 2019, the 5-hours, 15-min webinar series is delivered over five days, with intervening gaps, allowing you time to reflect, revise and review. You can attend all five modules in the series thus future proofing your business, or you can attend relevant modules only, if you need to refresh your understanding of each topic.

Following completion of all five webinars in the series, an attendance certificate will be issued showing that you attended the RIBA-accredited Business Skills Webinar Series.

For more information on individual modules, view the RIBA Business Skills Webinar Series Factsheet (PDF).

Module one will cover the following topics:

  • An overview of the tax aspects of the typical operating structures for architects and how the business tax interacts with your personal tax position
  • How key stakeholders can sell their businesses to Employee Ownership Trust and then implement incentive arrangements to lock in, motivate and reward their key talent
  • Live Q&A
