Knowledge Bureau & Universal Work Together For Canadian Students

When Universal Accounting felt that it was time to create tax preparation training for their Canadian students, they realized how complex tax preparation in Canada can be and determined that the best course of action was to acquire a Canadian tax preparation training program that had already been developed by Canadian tax experts for Canadian tax preparers. After extensive due diligence, we only found one source of tax preparation that met our standards of excellence – Knowledge Bureau.

Knowledge Bureau and Universal Work Together for Canadian Students

We are now confidently referring our Canadian students to Knowledge Bureau to acquire the best tax preparation program in Canada. We have even negotiated with Knowledge Bureau a special pricing on the Tax Professional Certification program.
