Promoting our profession
The Tax Institute’s mission is to educate and build expertise in tax and to raise the status of the tax profession. We are committed to serving the best interests of the profession as well as the wider community affected by tax policy.
The Tax Institute is a respected and influential contributor to the development of tax policy and administration in Australia. As part of this contribution, we prepare top level submissions on tax policy, administration and technical matters at both Federal and State levels. These submissions and advocacy work is all done in conjunction with tax practitioners and feedback from the profession.
Further, we promote stand-out individuals through our personal Tax Adviser of the Year Awards, which have a strong focus on ethics and professionalism, and are strongly involved in the tax community. This combined with our rigid focus on the integrity and character of our members and candidates we are focused on a respected future of our community.
Supporting our community
