Join us in Melbourne in 2017 for the Tax Institute’s National GST Intensive – Australia’s pre-eminent conference for GST practitioners and corporate advisory specialists.


This year’s program will be delivered over two days by some of Australia’s leading GST experts from the tax profession, industry and government. Delegates will hear updates on the latest GST rulings and cases and the program will also have in-depth sessions dealing with topical GST issues that are likely to impact practitioners in the coming year.

Topics covered will include the impact of the new B2B and B2C cross-border changes, current approaches and concerns of the Tax Office, changes in the GST administration landscape and for the first time, the program will also include break-out sessions on non-GST indirect taxes such as Customs Duty, Fuel Tax Credits, Wine Equalisation Tax and Luxury Car Tax.

Join us and bring your knowledge on key GST issues up to date, discover the latest thinking and take advantage of this great opportunity to network with colleagues and fellow GST experts.
