Enrolments now being taken for new Course in Commercial Law

The Tax Practitioners Board approves the Institute’s Course in Commercial Law

We are proud to announce that the Tax Practitioners Board approved the Institute’s Course in Commercial Law on 4 April 2013.

Alongside our Course in Australian Taxation Law, the Institute not only provides an additional education pathway to tax agent registration, but a broader education offering to strengthen the skills of tax professionals.

Free TaxLine research service

TaxLine is a dedicated member research service, supported by our research librarian team. This complimentary service to members provides information on specific tax-related enquiries.

Key events in May

Several of our key events are taking place in May — register now to ensure that you don’t miss out securing a place at the 46th South Australian Convention (2 to 4 May, Barossa Valley), the 6th Annual Tax Forum (16 to 17 May, Sydney) and Tax Through the Bottom of a Glass (23 to 24 May, Hobart).

CTA exam assessment option now taking enrolments

With over 7,500 (and growing) tax professionals now claiming CTA status in Australia, it’s only a matter of time before a client asks you if you’re a CTA. Why? Because by holding this designation, you are recognised in a number of international jurisdictions (including the UK, Europe and Ireland) as a tax industry leader.

To achieve the CTA designation, enrol in the CTA3 Advisory Exam.

New editions for 2013

Our publishing team is gearing up to publish the new editions of the SMSF Guide and Discretionary Trust Distributions in the coming weeks. Both are available in print and online, and offer structured CPD hours.

Don’t forget, a Tax Knowledge eXchange subscription with our online books option gives you full access to these and four other practical guides and handbooks, along with over 65,000 documents and up to 17 CPD hours.

Taxation in Australia iPad app

We’ve recently made some changes to our iPad app. If you’ve been having difficulty accessing the app, you’ll find help under the Taxation in Australia section on our website.
