This year’s HLB Audit – Tax – Advisory Conference 2023 took place in Madrid from 5 to 8 July. Under the theme “Riders on the Storm”, one of the objectives of the meeting was to highlight how HLB firms around the world have shown resilience during 2022, overcoming unprecedented challenges to continue providing quality and reliable service to their clients. Bové Montero acted as host firm for the event, as the conference was held in the Spanish capital, where one of its offices is located.

The agenda included technical sessions on audit, tax and consulting, where professionals from different HLB countries, external speakers and clients shared their views on current trends, operations and opportunities.

In addition, during the conference, several Bové Montero partners participated as speakers in different sessions:
Mónica Bové (Partner and Head of Consulting): Innovating to Prosper
Beltrán Sánchez (Transfer Pricing Partner): Transfer Pricing in Transactions with Intangible Assets
Andreu Bové (Tax Partner): Taking Advisory Services to the next level within our Firms – Tips on how to succeed and hurdles to avoid.

The conference was also an opportunity to celebrate the new milestone achieved by HLB, which has been ranked in the TOP 10 of the International Accounting Bulletin.

Several activities took place during the event. Bové Montero, as the host firm, invited colleagues and friends of HLB to visit its offices in the capital. It was a great opportunity to meet the rest of the Madrid team, to see the firm’s new premises at Calle Príncipe de Vergara, 109, and to continue strengthening ties in an informal atmosphere.
