Additional Information

The Tax Bar Association (TBA) was established in May 2022 as the first formal representative body for Junior and Senior Counsel who practise or possess expertise in the taxation field. Our forum provides specialist education to its members through seminars, conferences and breakfast briefing sessions which seek to keep attendees updated on developments in the highly specialised area of tax law. The TBA highlights to the wider community the role played by counsel in taxation and legal matters.
