Tell us about yourself
I am a tax and superannuation lawyer with 30 years’ experience from large CA and law firms, and now DBA Lawyers – a small tax and SMSF law firm in South Melbourne. DBA Lawyers was established over 20 years ago and have never looked back!
How long have you been affiliated with The Tax Institute?
I am a long time member, and have been happily affiliated with The Tax Institute since 1987.
What does the 1st Annual Tax Forum mean to you, and more broadly, to the tax industry?
It’s a great networking opportunity with the State’s top tax advisers presenting.
What is the topic that you are presenting at the 1st Annual Tax Forum?
I am presenting the “What’s Hot in Superannuation” session in the afternoon of Day 1.
What can attendees expect to take away from your session?
I would like attendees to take away the key 5 strategies that tax advisers must be abreast of 2013 and beyond.
With recent legislative changes, advisers must keep ahead of the wave of change to ensure they don’t miss considerable opportunities for, and implement strategies that are detrimental to, their clients.
Which other sessions at the 1st Annual Tax Forum are you most interested in attending?
There are many sessions that I like the look of, including some on the areas of trusts, SMEs, employee share schemes etc.
What do you like to do when you’re not knee-deep in tax?
I enjoy spending time with my family, and any remaining time on my road bike and surfing. With a young boy William and girl Katherine aged 12 and 14 years, I am kept busy – which is lots of fun.
Welcome to Victoria’s inaugural Tax Forum – a fresh new format for The Tax Institute’s premier event of the year. There has never been a better time to be a tax professional or to work in the tax domain. The relevance of the tax profession is stronger than ever.
