Annual report 2014-15
Message from the Chair
I am pleased to provide you with a copy of the Tax Practitioners Board Annual Report 2014-15, as tabled in Parliament on 28 October 2015.
This year's report highlights how we have supported registered tax practitioners, improved our business practices and continued to update our advice and guidance to align with changes affecting tax practitioners. The report outlines how we have achieved these outcomes during a period where we have also taken on additional regulatory responsibility.
In 2014–15, we successfully implemented new regulatory arrangements for tax (financial) advisers during the notification period. The report outlines how we are assisting financial advisers to understand their obligations under the tax agent services regime, while engaging with the financial adviser profession to prepare for introduction of transitional and standard registration in 2016.
Most importantly, the report reflects our continued commitment to ensuring the protection of consumers of tax agent services.
