It's very varied day to day. I'll normally start my day by reading through my emails and responding to client queries. Then I may have a client briefing that I will attend with a manager. Then I may have some more technical work to do involving spreadsheets and numbers. This may be followed by a team meeting where we decide what needs doing for the week. It really depends on the client but you work very closely with your teams so have contact with other associates to senior managers very regularly.

I arrive in the office and check my inbox first, sometimes work come in overnight, and I prioritise my tasks for the next few hours. Sometimes I may be given an urgent piece of work to do. My team did a lot of tax compliance work in the past few months. Lunch time is normally with colleagues somewhere near the office, it's a good chance to catch up. Sometimes I attend a client call with a manager, these calls are great opportunities to learn. I have a number of clients and work with quite a number of people in my team, including assistant managers, managers and senior managers.

Wow do you need to go to your clients offices at all the time?

Occasionally, but most of our meetings with clients are done over the phone

I agree with Amber, a lot of client meetings are over the telephone. I also draft a lot of emails to clients - they will be reviewed by managers before being sent. This is a good way to introduce yourself to the client as gradually you will be their main point of contact.
