An analysis of the Tax Practitioners Board outsourcing exposure draft

Source: The Tax Specialist Journal Article

Published Date: 1 Feb 2018


Outsourcing and offshoring are now commonly used work practices among tax professionals. A 2013 Australian study found that 21% of all accounting firms had adopted outsourcing. This article critically examines the necessity and efficacy of the Tax Practitioners Board exposure draft practice note TPB(PN) D38/2017 as a specific practice note on tax outsourcing and offshoring in relation to the Code of Professional Conduct, which forms part of the Tax Agent Services Act 2009 (Cth). As a result of some evidence of non-compliance, it finds that the practice note is useful in highlighting to tax practitioners involved in outsourcing and offshoring what their ethical responsibilities and obligations are under the Code of Professional Conduct.
