Advisory panel members

A high level Advisory Panel assists the Board in carrying out its activities, including by contributing to the Board’s real time policy advice to the Treasurer, advising on the quality and effectiveness of tax legislation and recommending improvements to support the general integrity and functioning of the tax system.

The Panel draws together some of Australia’s leading taxation professionals who have agreed to voluntarily contribute their knowledge and expertise in assisting the Board with its work. Panel members are appointed on the basis of their individual capabilities and expertise, not as representatives of particular interests.

The Panel provides an important additional source of advice to that provided by the business, professional and other community representative organisations with which the Board has developed close working relations.

Membership of the Advisory Panel will change from time to time and will be reviewed periodically by the Board. The current members are:
