All state and territory taxes covered in one complete program

Developed in conjunction with all Revenue Offices around the country, this comprehensive program presents both topics of universal interest across all the state taxes as well as dedicated streams addressing duties and payroll taxes.

Annual gathering of all jurisdictions

The Convention has always been a popular forum for interaction and discussion among participants in the state taxes community and is held annually on a rotational basis in all Australian capital cities. This year, the 23rd annual event will be held in tropical Darwin, over two full days of technical sessions and networking. 

Who should attend?

Particularly valuable for those with practices operating across multiple jurisdictions, attendees will be joined by all State and territory Revenue Commissioners, representatives from their offices and accounting and legal state taxes practitioners from around the country.

Time to reflect and relax

We recognise that taking a break from work and the office is more important than ever, and our Conventions incorporate numerous opportunities to relax, unwind and enjoy some time out of the office. This program allows delegates the time to enjoy robust technical discussions with their peers around the country and the chance to relax over a three-course dinner and drinks at the Convention dinner.
