With 30 June fast approaching, we’d like to remind all voting members of your CPD obligations.
It is vital to ensure that you maintain your professional status by keeping up to date with all the developments in the tax system. CPD ensures that you stay abreast of all of the developments in the tax system to maintain the highest level of technical knowledge.
We have expanded our CPD offering using the latest technology to make it as easy as possible for you to meet these obligations. Download the CPD booklet to find out all the different ways you can meet these requirements.
Tax Knowledge eXchange – now with up to 17 CPD hours
To support members in meeting their CPD obligations, we have now added CPD to our online knowledge base, the Tax Knowledge eXchange. This is a simple way to keep up to date with the latest developments in tax and take care of up to 17 hours of your CPD requirements.

Course in Commercial Law
The completion of a Course in Commercial Law is now a minimum requirement for registering as a tax agent. More importantly, it is no longer possible for you to undertake and provide the services required as a tax agent without regular, and consistent, engagement with Australia’s commercial law environment.
Become the very best tax practitioner you can be by enrolling in the CommLaw2 — Entities and Business Structures unit before 15 April 2013.
