A paper titled The case for reviewing Australian taxation of expatriate mining industry employees deployed to Africa to improve international competitiveness was produced by AAMEG in September 2014 after extensive consultation with the organisation’s members. This substantial document clearly demonstrates the unintended consequences that the introduction of s.23AG and Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) changes have had on the Australian resource sector operating overseas.
In response to the current White Paper on tax reform, AAMEG travelled to Canberra and delivered a submission to the ATO. This was subsequently followed up with a member survey supporting the submission. Many thanks to AAMEG member company PwC for their assistance with this process.
