CPD requirements for upcoming year

With the new financial year underway, it is a fantastic time to start planning for how you will acquire your CPD requirements.
We offer our members several industry-relevant publications and events that provide current information to help you stay up-to-date. These offerings are made available to you in a variety of formats — be that at one of our state conferences or seminars, online, in person or by DVD — and are continually being updated and developed to meet the needs of our members.
You will find upcoming events, courses and publications to help you meet your CPD requirements on our website at taxinstitute.com.au/professional-development/ upcoming-cpd-events.
Upgrade your tax qualifications

We are all so busy throughout the year, it can be easy to put off taking courses that help us stay up-to-date with our tax education requirements. With your membership renewed for the upcoming financial year, it is the perfect time to map out a plan to update the qualifications of yourself or your staff in 2014-15.
The Institute offers courses to cater for all of your tax requirements, with courses that lead into the CTA designation, in GST, tax law and financial advising. Although Study Period 2 is already underway, you can still register for several of our courses in 2014, including:
If you or your staff are looking to achieve BAS agent status, our Course in Basic GST/BAS Taxation Principles is available at any time. Similarly, if you or anyone you know is looking for a way to meet the requirements under the Tax Agent Services Act 2009 for financial advisers advising on tax, we now offer a Tax for Financial Advising course which you can undertake at your own convenience.
