This article reports the results of an online survey of Australian tax practitioners conducted in May 2014. The purpose of the survey was to gain further insight into how tax changes impact on the role of tax practitioners in assisting their clients to comply with tax obligations (including tax planning). The survey was also designed to identify the possible managerial benefits that business taxpayers may derive from their relationship with a tax practitioner. This article focuses only on the first objective of the survey.
