FPA welcomes TPB appointments
The Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) welcomes the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) appointments as announced today by the Minister, The Hon Kelly O’Dwyer.
The FPA has long advocated for the need to have a tax (financial) adviser representation on the TPB and therefore welcomes the appointment of former FPA Chair, Julie Berry CFP® to the TPB.
Mark Rantall, CEO of the FPA said: “Julie’s appointment will ensure that there is now a voice for financial planners, who make up the second largest group of registered individuals with the TPB.
“The FPA also welcomes the re-appointment of TPB Chair, Mr Ian Taylor, which will provide continuity to the work of the TPB.“
For financial planners that have not yet registered with the TPB, the notification period concludes on 31 December 2015.
