The Premier taxation event for Financial Services Professionals

Join us for Australia’s leading financial services tax conference on the Gold Coast over three days, from 6-8 February 2019. This year’s technical program covers the broad spectrum of tax issues affecting the financial services industry. The program includes sessions exploring the future of tax reform in Australia, tax policy in the digital age and striking an appropriate balance between integrity in the tax system and providing certainty for taxpayers.

Sessions also look at emerging issues and reforms such as the updates to Australia’s international tax infrastructure, stapled structures and hybrid mismatches. Attendees will also benefit from core updates including an ATO briefing on their focus areas, sessions on transfer pricing and GST and a wide array of breakout sessions.

We are excited to announce that The Tax Institute has an event app. This app is easy to use and contains program information, materials (technical papers and slides), evaluation forms and more. We encourage all delegates to download the app on their phone or tablet prior to this event.
