• Future of the tax profession working group - key messages

    Introduction

    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.
