The Tax Institute's National Convention program is designed to meet the educational needs of all taxation professionals. The technical topics have a broad relevance for all practitioners ranging from those with small practices, through to high end corporate Tax Managers and Tax Lawyers.
In addition to the SME and Corporate streams, a specialist topic stream will address key topic areas particularly relevant to practitioners in today's tax environment.
A full convention registration includes attendance at all technical sessions, a delegate conference folder containing hard copies of all PowerPoint presentations and electronic access to all technical papers. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, and attendance at the Convention Welcome Drinks and Convention Gala Dinner are also included.
