Adelaide Law School hosts 27th Australasian Tax Teachers’ Association 2015 Conference

The Adelaide Law School was proud to host the 27th Australasian Tax Teachers’ Association (ATTA) conference from 19-21 January 2015.

The theme for this year’s conference was:  Tax  – “It’s time” For Change. Over 100 registrants attended six keynote presentations and 70 academic and PhD presentations to discuss a range of perspectives on this topical subject.
A wide range of speakers representing the government and private sectors and academia attended the conference, including:
•    Justice Richard Edmonds of the Federal Court in Sydney
•    Second Commissioner Andrew Mills of the Australian Taxation Office
•    Robert Jeremenko the Senior Tax Counsel of The Tax Institute
•    Justice Anthony Besanko of the Federal Court in Adelaide
•    Scott Bryant Partner and Head of Legal and Tax, PricewaterhouseCoopers Adelaide
•    Professor Gordon Cooper, Adjunct Professor at the School of Taxation & Business Law at the University of NSW
•    Alice McCleary, Independent Professional Company Director and a past National President of The Tax Institute.

In addition to the formal proceedings, welcome cocktails were held at the beautiful Ballroom of Ayers House and the Wolters Kluwer (CCH) Conference Dinner held at the newly developed Adelaide Oval Stadium were particularly popular among conference delegates.

Feedback received after the conference was overwhelmingly positive, some of which has been included below. It was fantastic to host conference delegates in Adelaide and we look forward to seeing what happens in this space in the future.

Conference Feedback

“The 2015 ATTA Conference was my first ATTA Conference and, I have to say, the best academic conference I have ever attended. As well as having an opportunity to hear from a broad range of excellent speakers, it was a great chance to have numerous stimulating discussions with other participants about reforming the Australian tax and superannuation systems.”

“Not only was the ATTA Conference a brilliant learning experience, we also had a lot of fun and had the chance to check out some of the sights of the lovely city of Adelaide. The cocktail party at historic Ayers House and conference dinner at the newly renovated Adelaide Oval, both events with fantastic musical entertainment, were MC’ed by Chair of the Conference Organising Committee, Domenic Carbone. Domenic has missed his calling as a comedian (although I’m sure his students appreciate his wit).”
