Future of the tax profession working group - key messages
The Future of the tax profession working group is a special purpose forum with representatives from the ATO, tax professional and industry associations, tax and BAS agents, software developers and the Tax Practitioners Board.
The main focus areas are to:
- work together to support tax professionals in a changing environment, especially with changes to their software and online services as we move towards a digital environment
- better understand the trends and environmental factors affecting the tax profession in the longer term.
To better address these focus areas two sub-groups were formed:
- the Future Tax Profession, 2015–16 sub-group
- the Future Tax Profession, 2020 sub-group
The key messages summarise some relevant highlights from the meetings, including both the main group and sub-groups.
