Revenue Summit 2022


From: Thursday October 6, 2022, 9:00 am

To: Thursday October 6, 2022, 5:00 pm

The Australia Institute invites you to the Revenue Summit 2022.

A bigger role for government requires more tax to carve out space in the economy. After decades of focusing on spending cuts, efficiency dividends and budget emergencies it is time to confront the fact that many of Australia’s problems flow directly from the choice to be one of the lowest taxed countries in the developed world. 

We need a tax system that is fit for purpose, that raises revenue in a more efficient and equitable way.  

The Revenue Summit 2022 is for academics, public servants, political staffers, students, policy makers and anyone interested in meeting Australia's future challenges.
