Feedback on submissions welcomed

It's been a busy year in tax policy but it's still not quite silly season at The Tax Institute. We are heading towards the holiday period with a late flurry of submissions and consultations.

We are currently working on the following submissions amongst others:

  • ATO review of private advice
  • Inspector-General's review into the Taxpayers' Charter and taxpayer protections
  • Inspector-General's review into ATO's employer obligations compliance activities
  • Treasury exposure draft on small business restructure rollover

And here are some upcoming consultations just to name a few:

  • National Tax Liaison Group
  • Consultation Steering Group
  • ATO Tax Practitioner Advisory Group
  • Future of the Tax Profession Working Group
  • Lodgment Working Group
  • Workshops on ATO review of private advice
  • Board of Taxation consultation on foreign hybrids
  • Private Groups Stakeholder Group

Your input on any of the above would be much appreciated. Please contact us at Tax Policy if you have any comments.
