The Tax Indaba is now the largest annual gathering bringing together the entire tax community – tax practitioners, in-house tax staff members, government tax officials and tax academics. The Tax Indaba seeks to involve all tax professional bodies in South Africa, including SAICA, SAIPA, the Law Society, the IAC, CIMA and ACCA. Every year, the Tax Indaba seeks to add new variety and talent to benefit tax professionals who are seeking to refresh their knowledge and to learn about new tax-related developments.
To ensure continued relevance, the event is put together with the assistance of the whole tax community. The five-day event is broken down to cover various topics throughout the week, allowing attendees to either choose to attend particular days involving their specialties or to attend the five-day event as a whole.
For more information about the upcoming 7th annual event, which will be taking place from 11-15 Sepxember 2017 at the Sandton Convention Centre, visit the Tax Indaba website (www.taxindaba.co.za).
