Locally developed, nationally relevant

The Tasmanian Convention combines the latest tax technical content, expert presenters and practical workshops with ample opportunities to network and enjoy all of the culinary and cultural delights the State has to offer. 

Emphasis on the practical  

Held over two days, the Convention addresses a broad range of tax issues that advisers need to be across in running their day-to-day practices. With a mix of both technical and practical sessions, topics include compliance, superannuation, estate planning and everyone’s favourite, trusts. 

Time to network and relax 

The 2023 convention was held in Launceston. Launceston and it’s surrounds have a lot to offer both locals and visitors alike. Our Convention program ensures there is enough time for delegates to relax and network with peers and includes a Convention dinner as part of the program, where attendees can enjoy a first-class meal, fine Tasmanian wine and lots of tax industry discussion and debate.
