2020 Tasmanian State Convention

Published on 15 Oct 2020 | Took place at Online, TAS

The Tasmanian State Convention remains the state’s premier taxation event. The learning and engagement opportunities the Convention provided are arguably now more important than ever given the current challenges we are facing collectively as a country, and specifically as tax practitioners. Again, we gathered a program of outstanding speakers who presented on a range of topics we consider are most relevant to Tasmanian tax practitioners and provided a good understanding of the current issues to assist you and your clients.

As you may expect a number of this year’s sessions focused on the rapidly changing economic, legislative and administrative environment for tax practitioners. The upcoming Federal budget and the need for tax reform was expertly covered by well renowned Robyn Jacobson and Andrew Mills from The Tax Institute’s tax policy and advocacy team.
