13 Jan 10 Tax Practitioners Board announces Consultative Forum
In a media release issued on 17 December 2009, the Chair of the Tax Practitioners Board, Dale Boucher, announced consultation arrangements the Board will begin to introduce in January 2010.
At the first meeting of the Tax Practitioners Board held on 10 December 2009, the Board decided to form a number of committees, complemented by working groups, to address and consult about the range of issues that have been raised by the professions and others.
Following the first meeting of the Board, Mr Boucher said “I am inviting representatives from the professional associations to meet with board members in Sydney on 20 January 2010. At that meeting, we will develop our consultative arrangements that will in turn provide valuable input on many issues. The profession needs to hear how the Board will address issues of coverage such as in-house advisers required to register, entry requirements and specialist registrations," Mr Boucher said, “but first the Board needs to hear the views and gain input from the profession itself.”
