PITAA/ PFTAC Complex Tax Workshop

Co-funded by Pacific Islands Tax Administrators Association (PITAA) and Pacific Financial Technical Assistance Centre (PFTAC), this is a regional workshop focused on addressing complex tax technical issues. This initiative marks the beginning of an ongoing journey for those in Audit in the Pacific towards collaborative knowledge sharing and problem-solving. Compliance risk management, sharing of knowledge across countries to build capability and more sub-regional collaboration were priority themes identified in the PITAA baseline exercise conducted in Mount Hagen, Papua New Guinea in September 2023.

Workshop Objectives

The primary objectives of this workshop are to:

  • Serve as a platform for tax administration representatives from PITAA and PFTAC member countries to come together, discuss challenges, share insights, and best practices and receive training on complex and technical tax issues.
  • Foster an environment of mutual learning, where contemporary approaches and solutions to complex tax matters can be explored collectively.
  • Encourage collaboration among member countries in helping each other to address tax compliance issues.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is for:

  • Tax auditors at a senior level who manage large or complex tax technical cases. NB: The attendees will be expected to prepare a summary of current/real complex situations they are working on/require guidance on (suitably anonymised) that may be workshopped by attendees.
  • Participants will be expected to actively contribute to workshop sessions; and be willing to share their experience and challenges.
  • Those attending should be their country attendees on an ongoing basis able to commit to a monthly network meeting.
