In a similar vein, in this column I will seek to alert members of up coming consultative forum. The meetings scheduled next week include:
- NTLG Promoter Penalty Co-design Subcommittee: This initial meeting of the sub-committee on Monday 15 May 2006 in Canberra is to consult on the ATO’s implementation plans in respect of the promoter penalty rules. The Taxation Institute will be represented by Mark Robertson (Sir Harry Gibbs Chambers) and Michael Binetter (Kevin Munro & Associates).
- NTLG FBT Subcommittee is meeting in Melbourne on Thursday 18 May 2006. The Taxation Institute will be represented by Elsa Payne (PWC).
- ATO Tax Practitioner Forum meets in Canberra on Friday 19 May 2006. The Taxation Institute will be represented by myself.
If members have issues of concern in any area of tax administration please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, the external members of the National Tax Liaison Group (NTLG) met via telephone on Monday 8 May 2006 to put forward agenda items for the June meeting of the NTLG. Once an issue list is finalised I will alert members to the issues identified.
