Fifth Annual Trusts and Companies Tax Symposium
Thursday 10 & Friday 11 August 2017
The Langham Hotel, Melbourne

Our symposia are our most in depth events, and in them we allow presenters an hour to develop their subjects, which they can do more fully than in shorter presentations. 

The taxation of trusts remains front and centre for all advisors. Other highlights include Division 7A headaches, dealing with non-resident beneficiaries and extracting wealth out of companies.

Feedback from last year’s symposium:

  • Well-organised, well-presented and information was significantly relevant.
  • Good mix of topics and speakers, good timing, great venue and facilities.
  • Speakers were excellent as were topics.
  • Interesting topics and great range of topics and knowledgeable presenters.
  • Mostly excellent presenters and excellent papers, both technically and 'thought provoking'.
  • Quality technical papers and discussion. Good presenters who knew their topics. Well done again Rob and your team!
  • Compared to other technical seminars I have attended this seminar was more in depth, which is what I was looking for.  We know the issues, but are looking at ways to deal with those issues.
