New governance forum takes its first steps
The independent review of the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) recommended a new governance forum be created to safeguard the independent role of tax practitioners in the tax system. The government supported this recommendation, which led to the establishment of a new Tax Practitioner Governance and Standards Forum (TPGSF).
Purpose of the forum
The main purpose of the TPGSF is to ensure any significant proposals affecting tax practitioners, such as changes to relevant legislation and regulations, including the Code of Professional Conduct are made with appropriate consultation.
