Upcoming events and program intakes

Following on from one of our most successful NSW Annual Tax Forums ever, we’re very excited about our program of events for the latter half of 2014. We’ve still got a very full schedule of events coming up in the latter half of 2014, including the following.

47th WA State Convention
Returning to picturesque Bunker Bay on 28 to 29 August, this year’s program has a distinct SME focus, with a strong emphasis on trusts and estate planning, and sessions on CGT small business concessions, the objection process, Pt IVA and consolidation for SMEs. It will provide you with 11.75 hours of structured CPD, with our gala dinner capping off two days of technical toil.
