On Wednesday, 23 November 2011, the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit (JCPAA) tabled its report (Report 426) on the Ninth biannual hearing with the Commissioner of Taxation.
The report is structured around the following key themes:
- the level of service provided;
- consultation on policy issues; and
- external scrutiny and reviews.
The JCPAA made 6 recommendations arising out of these key themes.
The JCPAA states in its report that it has decided to hold future hearings with the Commissioner annually rather than biannually. The next hearing is likely to be held in September 2012.
