What you can expect
Our theme this year is Accountability.
- Watch our panel of industry experts dissect the Finance Minister’s Annual National Budget Speech for 2022/23, not even a day after he delivers it. This includes audience Q&A.
- You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of what the budget means to you and your business. And solid insights you can use to prepare yourself for the coming year.
- in addition, we’ll be casting our critical spotlight on the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture report.
With part 1 released in January and part 2 on 1 February, the Budget Breakfast is the ideal forum to build a national conversation about what needs to happen next. We’ll be asking our panel:
- What is accountability?
- Who should we hold accountable and for what?
- What about your own accountability as individuals?
- How do we hold the accountancy profession accountable for its part in state capture?
- Can we rebuild trust in our state institutes, like SARS and Eskom, by holding accountable those found responsible for their capture
