It is with great sadness that the Board of Taxation (the Board) acknowledges the passing of its Chair, Michael Andrew AO, on Sunday 23 June.
Michael was a highly respected member of the business and tax community as is reflected in the statement made by the Treasurer, the Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, acknowledging both Michael’s distinguished career and the significant contribution that he made to improve the design of the tax system.
The Board would like to recognise and acknowledge the integrity, leadership and keen intellect Michael brought to making the tax system simpler and fairer for all Australians. Michael leaves behind an enduring legacy. We will miss his friendship, guidance and support.
We offer our condolences to Michael’s family and friends.
