Message from the Chair, February 2016
The Board of Taxation’s February meeting was held in Melbourne.
I was pleased to hear of the progress being made on the Board’s current work programme, in particular, progress on the Board’s voluntary tax transparency code and tax policy development projects.
The Board was also delighted to welcome the Minister for Small Business and Assistant Treasurer, the Hon Kelly O’Dwyer MP, to this meeting to share her thoughts with the Board.
I was particularly keen to progress the launch of the ‘Sounding Board’, the Board’s new, online collaborative platform to source and prioritise ideas on how to improve the tax system. The platform is due to be launched in March and I am confident it will make a substantial contribution.
