2020 Rottnest Tax Retreat

event  07 February 2020 - 07 February 2020  |  Rottnest Island

The Rottnest Tax Retreat, aimed at the Advanced Tax Professional, offers the experienced tax practitioner a unique forum to network with esteemed colleagues and presenters alike in the picturesque back drop of Rottnest Island and Karma Resort.

Work Hard
Delegates will attend three technical sessions presented by experts in their fields, covering Income Tax, Trusts & Succession Planning. Each technical session will be followed by a 30-minute case study allowing speakers and delegates alike to delve deep into high level tax discussions on the respective topics.

Play Hard
A trip to Rottnest would be wasted without a chance to take in the salty air and breathtaking views. The day will close off with a long table lunch at the picturesque Pinky’s Beach Club Restaurant where delegates can take in the view and continue the conversation or wind down over a 3-course meal.

Seats are limited to this event, so make sure you register to avoid missing out!
