Welcome to a new year
We’re excited to be back and are gearing up for another great year, bringing you some great education programs and events, like the 2014 Tax Adviser of the Year Awards, the winners of which will be announced next month at the 29th National Convention in Hobart.
Summer sale – ends 14 February
Our summer sale ends soon. If you’ve been meaning to pick up any of our sale items, make sure you do so before Friday, 14 February.
Notice to members – TaxVine is changing
TaxVine delivers the latest tax news via email to every member each Friday. This year, you’ll notice TaxVine has a new look and a clearer layout.
If you’re viewing TaxVine on your mobile or tablet device, you’ll find an optimised experience for easier reading and navigation. To gauge member feedback, we’ll be testing the new layout with half of our membership mailing list for two months, so if you don’t receive the new version don’t worry, it’ll be coming to you when we roll out the final version incorporating any feedback in March.
Study period 1 is open for enrolment
Are you wondering what 2014 has in store for your firm?
If you want to remain competitive in the market, ongoing education will ensure that you achieve your goals and that your employees have the skills and knowledge required to grow your client-base.
With that in mind, all of our programs are open for enrolment, including The Chartered Tax Adviser Program, the Course in Australian Taxation Law, and the Course in Commercial Law. These courses are designed for candidates at various stages of their profession to further enhance their performance, and are designed by Australia’s leading educator in tax — The Tax Institute.
