About the Board of Taxation

The Board of Taxation is a non-statutory advisory body that provides the Government with real-time advice on tax policy issues by contributing a business and tax community perspective to improving the design and operation of taxation laws.

The Board undertakes in-depth reviews as and when requested by the Treasurer, and provides input on tax policy and law design matters in real-time, as decisions are being made.

The Board draws on its Advisory Panel and broad networks throughout the business and tax community in carrying out its work.

See the Board’s Charter in full.

The Board currently comprises of 11 members, eight of whom have been appointed from the non-government sector and three of whom are ex officio members — the Secretary to the Australian Treasury, the Commissioner of Taxation and the First Parliamentary Counsel. The Board of Taxation is supported by a Secretariat provided by the Treasury.

The Board welcomes comments and suggestions from the community in relation to its advisory role on the operation of the Australian taxation system. Please contact us.
