A closer look at the VIC 4th Annual Tax Forum program with Jason Barnes, CTA

Jason Barnes, CTA, is a member of the Organising Committee for the VIC 4th Annual Tax Forum. At King & Wood Mallesons he is a Special Counsel, and has over 15 years' tax experience. His experience includes roles as a Special Counsel at a specialist tax advisory firm, and two secondments to major banks in Hong Kong and Melbourne.

Primarily practising in the area of income tax (including tax audits and litigation), his practice also extends to goods and services tax, stamp duty and resource taxes, but he tells us “My current favourite tax topic of interest is the new foreign resident capital gains withholding regime!”

We spoke to Jason about the upcoming VIC 4th Annual Tax Forum, and some of the sessions he’s looking forward to.

Asked what the Forum means to him, and more broadly, to the tax profession, Jason said “It’s an opportunity to hear and learn from some of the best tax minds in the country and to catch up and network with colleagues - existing and former - and clients”.
