GST Risks – Wednesday 12 May 2021

May 5, 2021

GST has been with us for over 20 years, however challenges and risks are still emerging. This session focused on the considerations required by local governments in the areas of fees and charges and grants to community groups. Both areas provide challenges and have a degree of grey in the current requirements. This session also identified some of the challenges as well as provided pragmatic steps that a council can take to reduce compliance risk in this area.

The session was facilitated by Simone Wickes, FinPro Executive Member and Manager, Financial and Corporate Planning at Frankston City Council.
The speaker was Katerina Siamatas, Indirect Specialist Tax Adviser at Crowe . Katerina was joined in the panel discussion by Wei Chen, FinPro Executive member and CFO at Yarra City Council
