Annual Report 2015-16
Message from the Chair
I am pleased to provide you with a copy of the Tax Practitioners Board Annual Report 2015-16, as tabled in Parliament on 27 October 2016.
New government regulations, changing technology and digital interfaces as well as the desire to engage with registered tax practitioners in a more meaningful way have combined to create a period of substantial change for the Tax Practitioners Board.
During the last financial year, our major focus has been on registering tax (financial) advisers in line with new government regulations designed to ensure consistent regulation of all tax advice.
With a significant increase in the registered tax practitioner population, we are now focusing on ensuring our registered tax (financial) advisers understand the requirements for renewing their registration and their obligations under the Tax Agent Services Act 2009 (TASA).
This year’s report captures these developments and also reflects our continued commitment to ensuring the protection of consumers of tax agent services.
