The financial departments of the P3 Parks Group together participated in a one-day training course on current and deferred tax at the KPMG Business Institute. The focus of the course was to provide participants with an overview of typical items that influence an entity’s tax base, their effect on local deferred tax, and the effective use of tax rates to assess the accurate calculation of tax. Practical examples provided participants with the opportunity to test their newly-acquired understanding. Selected transaction types were then examined further in view of the different legislative approaches in the individual countries in which the P3 Parks Group is active. The expectation was that this training course would provide solid knowledge on deferred tax to the country representatives as well improve the quality of internal tax reporting processes. The training course certainly fulfilled our expectations.
In brief: maximum satisfaction with both the scope and the presentation and all explanations.
Financial instruments: I would like to thank your colleagues for their excellent preparation and perfectly elaborated materials.
Training sessions on the protection of competition, taking place regularly already since 2013 and led by KPMG lecturers, are tailored to the requirements and goals of our parent company based in Germany. The lecture always includes specific practical examples considerably enhancing the training. Overall, the training sessions proved to be very beneficial and useful for us.
ISAE 3402 issues: Professional training sessions led by experienced lecturer Radka Haluzíková, who manages to quickly and efficiently pass on a whole range of information in the area of ISAE 3402. Her exceptional identification with our requirements in the field of education is highly appreciated. Since the beginning of our cooperation, we have had no reasons whatsoever for any dissatisfaction. We are content with the course and the contents of the professional training, the selection of topics for individual groups of employees, practical examples and suitability for our company’s actual business activity, as well as the ability to promptly and flexibly adjust the topic according to real issues presented.
Mentoring programme for social enterprices: Many thanks to KPMG for the mentoring experience. I found it immensely beneficial. Analysing our firm in such a pleasant company of mentors was a real experience. Both mentors (H. Pleskačová) were very pleasant and at the same time honest and able to communicate negative things (which is very important for me) while also being able to appreciate things that are positive. There’s nothing better than being able to discuss your firm’s issues with an unbiased professional who provides you with a completely independent view of your problem or concern and advises you on what to do next and how. Since we started cooperation with KPMG, big changes have been taking place at our firm – for the better. After this experience, I will be happy to pay for additional mentoring classes.
Financial risk management for social enterprises: Since attending your training course, we have started reorganising the firm’s entire operation. We hired an accountant and started reviewing everything from the ground up and putting everything in order. Previously, we only used an external accountant. We now calculate expenses and revenues, and allocate costs to individual products. We monitor how long it takes to manufacture each product, etc. We are reorganising work procedures and so forth. I know, six years after the firm’s establishment, it may seem a bit late, but it was your course that finally opened my eyes. What’s more, we managed to obtain three new customers.
Be an Insurance Company CEO for a Day: A very good and sophisticated game. I recommend increasing price sensitivity; a high price of insurance not justified by higher costs guarantees very high profits – useful in games consisting of a small number of rounds (approx. up to eight rounds), where it will guarantee a win in the Equity category.
Be an Insurance Company CEO for a Day: An elaborate game that is excellent for gaining experience in making decisions on an insurance company’s strategy, including the ensuing financial result. I recommend playing this game with sales people and agents, too. It’s a pity that it only covers non-life insurance. I recommend expanding the game to include other insurance companies as well.
Be an Insurance Company CEO for a Day: The game impressed with its quick presentation of results and a very entertaining drawing of market scenarios and disasters. Although the extent to which each “setting” affected market shares and costs was not very clear, this added an exciting element of surprise. Subsequently, after several interactions, the impact could be estimated.
