2017 ANNUAL TAX CONFERENCE

It is worthy to note that the Annual Tax Conference has continued to be the largest gathering of Chartered Tax Practitioners and Tax Administrators locally and internationally. It has always created an avenue for participants to brainstorm, generate and share professional ideas, not only on taxation issues but also on related national issues that are necessary for the attainment and sustenance of vibrant socio- economic development. This forum has also provided an avenue for decision makers in Government and the organized private sector to make objective and feasible decisions when faced with the reality of making fundamental micro or macro-economic decisions.

This year’s Conference promises not to be different. Conference delegates would be opportune to attend a wide range of presentations that would be delivered by leading experts in both tax administration and practice. This year’s Conference, as usual, promises to create opportunities for networking, collaboration, and sharing information on technical and management practices. The conference would enable attendees to build confidential relationships across corporate disciplines and geographical boundaries.

The 19th Annual Tax Conference has been scheduled to hold from Wednesday, 17th May through Saturday 20th May, 2017 at Green Legacy Resort situated within Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library Oke Mosan Abeokuta Ogun State.

Topics that would be presented and discussed would cover a broad range of tax related issues. Some of which are:

Budgets and open Governments: the quest for transparency and accountability, Alignment of appropriate tax policy options with economic realities: the essence of business oriented and timely interventions, fiscal challenges and opportunities of the Nigerian economy, Taxation and infrastructural developments, Taxation and Governance: The Social Contract Imperatives, Psychology of the taxpayer and voluntary tax compliance.

Registration starts at 10:00 on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 with a welcoming Hospitality Night event on the same day to kick off the three-day Conference. Each day begins with a keynote address and is followed by one or more invited speakers. There will be five panel sessions presented in the technical sessions.
