The National Congress will be held at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast from November 22-24 this year.

Delegates will hear from Dr Michael Schaper, deputy chair of the ACCC and one of the IPA’s newest directors.

Dr Schaper will be focusing on new and emerging issues that are likely to affect you and your accounting practice. He will also give delegates a sneak peek of some new regulatory changes that lie ahead for the industry.

Delivering a highly anticipated keynote, Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman, Kate Carnell, will also be addressing and updating delegates.

To talk through the implications and expectations associated with Single Touch Payroll, the ATO’s John Shepherd - who led the rollout of the program - will be also be at this year’s National Congress.

Chair of the Tax Practitioners Board, Ian Taylor, will also be giving a comprehensive update to delegates about the TPB’s regulatory activities, critically including its approach to penalties and compliance action now and into the future.

Of course, chief executive of the IPA, Andrew Conway, will also be in attendance, both in a formal address to members on the association’s plans and positions, and throughout the Congress to hear feedback and comments.
