29 Oct 1010 Preamble - Friday 29 October 2010This week I attended the Taxation Institute's Resources Tax conference in Perth. The conference was a great success, with the high number of delegates reflecting the level of interest in this sector. You may have seen some of the media coverage we received, but please see below for further details.
Also this week, the Taxation Institute lodged a submission with the government's Policy Transition Group (PTG) outlining our views on matters raised in the Minerals Resource Rent Tax issues paper. Our submission was developed with the assistance of a number of members, and we thank them for their valuable input. The Taxation Institute will be meeting with the PTG next week to discuss the issues arising from our submission. We will continue to be engaged with the PTG, particularly at the stage where the proposals are translated into draft legislation.
Please see below for details of other activities this week.
