Stage 4 Lockdown - Tax Professionals Permitted to Practice

There is considerable public conjecture that the Victorian government is currently considering Stage 4 restrictions in the event of an escalation in COVID-19 cases. Accountants, tax practitioners, professional advisers and bookkeepers are critical to maintaining and supporting business and individuals (i.e. taxpayers) through the COVID-19 crisis. There are significant risks to the economy, the business operating environment, and the tax and superannuation systems, if they are unable to operate.
