The Future of Tax in New Zealand - Public symposium Event as iCalendar

(Commercial Law)

27 November 2018

8:30am - 5:15pm

Venue: The University of Auckland Business School, Level 0, OGGB3, 12 Grafton Road, Auckland, 1010

Please join us at The University of Auckland Business School for our public symposium to debate the Options for Tax Reform contained in the Tax Working Group’s September 2018 Report.

The Tax Policy Scholarship Charitable Trust, in association with the University of Auckland and Victoria University of Wellington, invites you to register early to hear from Sir Michael Cullen, Chair, and other members of the Government’s Tax Working Group (TWG), and contribute your thoughts and questions on the major tax reform options under consideration.

This is a great opportunity to provide feedback to the Government and the TWG on the options and issues set out in the TWG’s interim report.

  • Should New Zealand tax capital gains? Would it make the system fairer and what would the effect be on you, your business and your savings?
  • How can the broader tax system be improved? Are taxes an effective way of tackling environmental challenges? What strategies and recommendations are missing from the TWG’s interim report?

The day will involve interactive sessions with plenty of opportunity for discussion and Q&A.

Topics include:

  • Capital gains tax
  • Tax and inequality
  • Business tax and productivity
  • Environmental and behavioural taxes
  • Tax and the New Zealand economy

Speakers include:
Sir Michael Cullen, Bill Rosenberg, Oscar Parkyn, Susan St John, Craig Elliffe, Brendan Brown, Joanne Hodge, Paul Dunne, Robin Oliver, John Payne, Diane Maxwell, Geof Nightingale, Marjan van den Belt, Michelle Reddington, Kirk Hope, Michael Barnett, John Shewan.
