Another month, another exciting education course launch!
Building directly on a strong foundation in the areas of trusts, estate planning and wealth management currently supported through our publications, CPD events, and online resources, The Tax Institute is meeting the profession’s demand by distilling our expertise into a formal education course.
The Tax for Trusts, Estate Planning and Wealth Management course gives you the skills to advise on wealth accumulation and management strategies, and is essential for any practitioner who wants to understand complex tax matters relating to trusts and estates.
Not only is this course taught by the highly respected industry expert Harry Rigney, CTA, it is also supported by the revised edition of Marks’ Trusts & Estates: Taxation and Practice.

Tax rates table 2014-15
In this month’s journal, you will find your complimentary copy of the Institute’s handy desktop tax rates table — an indispensable aid with the most commonly used tax rates at your fingertips, including the Medicare levy, tax offsets, superannuation, eligible termination payments, FBT, CPI indexes, and more.
We hope you find this resource valuable.
