National GST Intensive

event  12 September 2019 - 13 September 2019  |  Rendezvous Hotel Melbourne

Australia’s pre-eminent conference for GST practitioners and corporate advisory specialists!

The Tax Institute’s National GST Intensive – Australia’s pre-eminent conference for GST practitioners and corporate advisory specialists returns to Melbourne in 2019.

It is with great anticipation that we welcome Robert Olding as the keynote speaker for this year’s event. With his unique and diverse background Robert will bring a wealth of GST expertise and provide insight into his first hand case law and administrative decision-making experiences. Robert will also reflect on lessons for tax and policy officers, as well as taxpayers and their advisers, as the third decade of the Australian GST experience approaches.

The ensuing program will be delivered over two days by some of Australia’s leading GST experts from the tax profession, industry and government. Many of the conference sessions will have an in depth look through topical issues providing practical takeaways and applications for GST specialists.

In another program highlight, Lachlan Wolfers, Global Head of Indirect Tax for KPMG will explore how the evolution of technology (both for tax, and in the broader economy) could impact the behaviours and practices of taxpayers, practitioners and the tax authorities.

We are also excited to welcome Deborah Jenkins, ATO Deputy Commissioner, who will provide insight into key GST issues for smaller to medium businesses, how it fits into the whole of the system, and the future.

Don't miss out on this extremely high calibre of speakers so we encourage you to join us and bring your knowledge on key GST issues up to date, discover the latest practical thinking and take advantage of this great opportunity to network with colleagues and fellow GST experts.
