The States’ Taxation Conference remains the only national conference covering all state and territory taxes in one technical program. This year’s conference will be held at The Westin Sydney.

As in previous years, all state and territory Revenue Commissioners will be in attendance, together with representatives from their respective offices. With strong attendance from both the private and government sectors, the conference has always been a popular forum for interaction among participants in the state taxes community and is particularly valuable for those with practices operating across multiple jurisdictions. The conference offers the opportunity to network with fellow practitioners and revenue officers during both the technical and social programs. The technical program has been pitched at a level that provides the general practitioner with a good understanding of current issues, although more technical topics are covered in depth for the tax specialists.

Particular effort has been made to present topics of universal interest across all the state taxes. These include the Commissioner’s powers of administration, evidence in a tax dispute, current trends in statutory interpretation and getting optimal outcomes in common interactions.

There will also be the usual update on significant cases, followed by an expert panel discussion, which will again feature two concurrent sessions, separately covering duties and payroll tax. The ‘duties stream’ has breakout sessions covering reconstruction exemptions, foreign purchaser surcharges and the legal meaning of ‘market value’, while the ‘payroll tax stream’ will consider grouping and exclusion orders, employee share schemes and the employment agent provisions.

As always, the conference materials will be a valuable research resource for years to come.
