Change Program - technical system upgrade workshop
Dr Michael Dirkis FTIA and Angie Ananda FTIA represented the Taxation Institute at a workshop held on Tuesday, 29 September 2009 in relation to the Change Program. The workshop was designed to assist participants to understand the impacts of the technical system upgrade (ie the Change Program) and to discuss how the ATO should communicate these changes. The workshop focussed on the impact of the Change Program on tax agents, BAS agents, software producers and individuals. With a potential late January/early February shutdown agents may need to reschedule some refund clients to ensure their refunds are not unduly delayed.
