1. You get more than just a seminar. We offer “service after the seminar” and ask that you call us with any questions you may have after the seminar. We offer this service so you can get the answers you need. We help you identify the areas that need improvement; therefore, many times when people get back to their office they have questions or need clarification. Some participants are just uncomfortable asking questions in front of a room full of strangers and prefer to ask their questions through the anonymity of a phone call. Either way we want you to feel comfortable about the information we provide to you.

2. We know what the auditors know. Since our curriculum is planned and presented by former auditors, we have the knowledge and experience to give you the answers you need. We can also give you the insider tips that will make your job, and even your next audit, go much more smoothly.

  • Sessions and Carver deal with boring material but their seminars are not boring and they were so willing to address any questions we had. They really have been a valuable source for us when we have encountered sales tax questions which sometimes can be very complex. Their seminars are money well spent.

  • I have been with this company for 28 years and have attended many Sales and Use Tax Seminars. By far, your seminar was the best. I was so hyped when I left the seminar. The information that I received was overwhelming. When I returned to the office the next day, I called our sister company and shared the information that I learned. I have recommended to the accounting manager that she should consider attending your next seminar. I explained how all my questions were answered and how you explained everything on a level that could be understood. The literature and continuing email correspondence has been greatly used and shared with our corporate office and sister company.

  • I was very surprised how interesting the seminar was. I was very confused about sales and use tax before attending and now feel as though I have a pretty good handle on it. My boss was also very impressed as to how much and how quickly I picked up on the topic.

  • This seminar on sales and use tax was very thorough and informative. It has enabled me to answer many of my clients' questions regarding sales and use tax. It has also assisted me with preparing clients for sales and use tax audits. I would strongly recommend it to other CPA's in public practice as well as to bookkeepers/controllers within organizations.

  • I enjoyed the seminar and you both did make it enjoyable which was a welcome relief! But more importantly to me, both of you were very knowledgeable about the topics covered which were both practical and understandable. Your background as former auditors was especially good since it gave us a different perspective. Thanks for doing this - it's a real service for those of us in the trenches!

  • The seminar was great! John and Chris made an otherwise dull and complex subject interesting and much easier to understand. I went into the seminar with a long list of questions; most of which were answered without my having to ask them. The information shared was relevant and I was able to immediately apply what I learned!

  • I found the Sessions and Carver Sales & Use Tax Seminar very informative and helpful. To this day, I still refer to the material that they gave me in the seminar. Also, I have emailed on two or three occasions with a question and have received a quick response just like they promise. I recommend this seminar to everyone in business.
