The Tax Practitioners Board has published a draft report of its meeting (Consultative Forum) with 13 professional associations (including the Taxation Institute of Australia) held on 20 January 2010. The intention of the preliminary Forum was to determine how to establish an ongoing consultative mechanism for the Board.
In a message from the Chair of the Board, Dale Boucher, he said that he believed that it met this aim. Mr Boucher said that the Board is now using this input, together with information gained from individual stakeholder meetings. The Board will map out its formal consultative arrangements to ensure the smooth transition to the new Tax Agent Services regime.
