Session 1: Keynote Address - GST, Tax and Economic Reform in a Post COVID-19 World
John Hewson is one of Australia's pre-eminent GST policy experts due to his long experience and thoughtful commentary over at least three decades.
In his keynote address he will provide his foresight into the challenges which COVID-19 will impose on the economy and its management into the future.
There's a query that the GST is not performing as it should, and that it is not delivering the economic and financial outcomes that it was designed for.
COVID-19 only accelerates the need for GST reform, in line with a general move (already underway) towards indirect taxes and away from traditional income concepts. In his presentation, John Hewson AM will cover:

Mid-morning email from the TPB pops up: “Notice of Decision to Investigate” You open the email, shaking… Afternoon email from the ATO pops up: “Notice of Audit”. You’re still shaking… What do you do when the email is notification of a client audit? What do you do when the email is an investigation into your own conduct as a practitioner?
Accountants and lawyers live in different professional worlds but often need to work together in the interests of a mutual client in a dispute with the ATO. A significant aspect of the work of the accountant is to derive information from data and present it in accordance with accepted conventions. This is almost always an objective exercise. Lawyers view the same data and information as representing a set of facts and assess it in terms of evidential probity: that is, is it relevant? Is it admissible? Will it help or harm the client? This is almost always subjective.
Worlds collide when different views are taken of the same set of facts. But how can that be?
For clients to get the best outcome in a tax dispute, these worlds need to be reconciled. How is this to be done?
With highly experienced practitioners on our panel, this workshop session will look at the key practical issues that accountants and lawyers need to traverse in dealing with each other and preparing to work together in order to successfully assist clients through the treacherous world of ATO audits. We also look at the same issues for the situation where it is you, the Accountant, not the client that is in the crosshairs of a TPB investigation. In particular we will discuss:
Some limited pre-reading will be required to maximise the effectiveness of this session.
