Tax and alcohol...how do they mix?

The Tax Institute invites you to attend our brand new convention, "Tax Through the Bottom of a Glass", which has been carefully designed to give you the best possible technical content, while at the same time providing ample opportunity to network with the presenters and your fellow delegates.

You have worked hard to attract and retain your most entrepreneurial clients who are pioneering new products or new markets. Now, as their businesses grow, they are taking you with them into unchartered waters where you will encounter various taxation issues and opportunities of which your clients may not yet be aware. In fact, many taxation issues that might have been perceived as only for the "big end of town" can be highly relevant to small and medium, and even micro enterprises in any industry.

Working with your clients to discover and deal with their "unknown unknowns" will both challenge and reward you.

The alcohol industry is a perfect environment in which to look for tax unknowns that may impact on enterprises of any size. The industry may still be dominated by a few giant corporations, but at the same time there is a consumer movement back to wine from small wineries, craft beers and spirits, and renewed interest in cider, mead and other things given to us by Bacchus.

There are many small, medium and micro enterprises active in the industry – and they can face many of the same taxation issues and opportunities as the industry giants.

Our impressive line-up of speakers for this conference includes:

  • Dr Michael Dirkis, CTA, University of Sydney
  • Bill Lark, Founder of Lark Distillery 
  • Gil Levy, CTA, Gilsons Chartered Accountants and Chartered Tax Adviser
  • Dr Kerrie Sadiq, CTA, Queensland University of Technology.




Express your interest and reserve your place early, as the limited number of places available will sell out quickly. Early bird registration closes on Friday 22 March so register now or contact Megan Hough on 03 9603 2000.
