This volume contains the proceedings of a workshop held in Sydney in February–March 1985, on a subject which has been somewhat neglected in the past, but which will be of increasing importance in the future.
The publication includes an Appendix on administrative and compliance costs of taxation, a subject which the Foundation subsequently adopted as one of its major studies. The high calibre and diverse perspectives of the speakers and the participation of representatives of the Australian Taxation Office made this a most valuable contribution to the Foundation's 1985 programme, pointing the way to a number of issues which required research in the years ahead.
