Participants connected face-to-face, tuned in to some high-value content and celebrated the region’s 45th anniversary with unique experiences to create lasting memories. Next is the EMEA Regional Meeting in Bratislava, 8 – 10 June. Click here for all upcoming events.

The AGN Advisory Migration Methodology


Interview: Webb’s Journey to Partner


Budgeting For Businesses: An Agile Approach

Driven by the deployment of the latest technologies and changing client expectations, accountants are transitioning from pure compliance services to a more advisory-centred approach.

As compliance processes become increasingly automated, there is an opportunity for the consultancy aspect of client service to become a greater part of the value billed to the client.  

Discover the Advisory Migration Methodology (AMM) and accompanying Advisory Migration Diagnostic (AMD) to help you reflect on your status quo and reveal unforeseen gaps and opportunities.


After ten years with AGN North America firm James Moore CPA and Tax Accounting Services, we wanted to hear about Webb’s journey to Partner.

How did his career progress and transpire? What were his goals and challenges? What can we learn, and how easy is it? Watch Webb’s <6-minute interview to hear his real-life story and experiences.

Building strong connections is key to reaching the position of Partner. AGN’s multi-channel approach to connecting communities includes face-to-face & virtual interactions, webinars and specialist knowledge-sharing technology platforms.


Planning is essential to provide direction, increase efficiency, reduce risks and facilitate decision-making. Financial budgeting is a critical component of planning.
One of the best practices recommended is preparing the budget on“Zero Base” – allocating resources based on programme efficiency and necessity rather than budget history (traditional budgeting).

Zero-based budgeting can pave the way for well-designed policy changes.
