The PITAA Secretariat in partnership with the Pacific Financial Technical Assistance Centre (PFTAC) is delighted to invite your administration to nominate two (2) participants fully funded to attend the face-to-face regional workshop on Tax Audit scheduled from 24th – 28th April 2023 at the Lava Hotel in Apia, Samoa.
A tax administration’s role includes encouraging taxpayers to voluntarily meet their tax obligations, including ensuring taxpayers file accurate tax returns. However, there are often times where taxpayers make mistakes or choose to file incorrect returns. Therefore, it is necessary for the tax administration to take the appropriate action to address this risk, and this includes undertaking taxpayer audits.
Tax auditing is therefore a very important part of managing compliance risk and to encourage taxpayers to voluntarily comply with their tax obligations. As a tax administration often has limited audit resources it is necessary for the administration to employ a risk-based approach for identifying and prioritizing taxpayers to be audited and ensure the appropriate type of audit is undertaken to meet tax administration’s outcomes. It is critical that the administration’s Auditors have the necessary skills and experience to be able to undertake the audit activity.
Who Should Attend?
This workshop is targeted at Auditors who may either be new to their role or those auditors who may need further development at an introductory or intermediate level, and also be provided with an understanding of good audit practices. Workshop participants will be called upon to share their experiences and those of their respective audit teams on tax and audit issues for group discussion.
Nominated participants are kindly requested to register their attendance by close of business 14th March 2023.
Should you have any queries relating to this workshop, please email Petero Maivucevuce at firstname.lastname@example.org
