Our members lead the way in tax.

The Tax Institute is Australia’s leading professional association and educator in tax providing the best resources, professional development and networks. With over 12,000 members, our mission is to educate and build expertise in tax and to raise the status of the tax profession.

Our growing membership base includes tax professionals from commerce and industry, academia, government and public practice throughout Australia. Our reach extends to over 40,000 Australian business leaders, tax professionals, government employees and students through the provision of specialist, practical and accurate tax content.

We are committed to propelling members onto the global stage with over 7000 of our members holding the Chartered Tax Adviser designation which represents the internationally recognised mark of expertise.

The Tax Institute was established in 1943 with the aim of improving the position of tax agents, tax law and administration. Australia’s tax system has evolved and become increasingly respected, dynamic and responsive, having contributed to shaping the changes that benefit our members and the taxpayer today.

More than seven decades later, our values, friendships and the unselfish desire to learn from each other are central to our success. The Tax Institute is known for its committed volunteers and the altruistic sharing of knowledge. Members are actively involved ensuring that the technical products and services on offer meet the varied needs of Australia’s tax professionals.
