At SAIT we are driven by the pursuit of establishing a tax profession that is recognisable, credible and above all underpinned by a culture
of excellence. While many of our tax professionals are located within larger accounting firms, the majority of our members are
private practice owners who provide exceptional tax services to their private and business clients while simultaneously marketing
their practice and engaging with potential clients.
As your tax professional body of choice, we aim to enable you with the tools that will take your practice to the next level. We offer
a range of member benefits that are catered specifically towards ensuring that our membership base is able to maintain their client
relations while simultaneously growing their businesses. In 2015 we will be taking the effort out of entertaining your clients. We will
provide you with the platforms that you can use to build and expand relationships. This will include our annual Budget Breakfast, our
monthly TaxTalk Business Newsletter and regional golf days.
