Launching in June 2019, UNSW School of Taxation & Business Law’s Tax Clinic will support unrepresented, lower income or vulnerable taxpayers and small businesses in managing their tax affairs.
The mission of the Tax Clinic is to improve access to tax justice for all members of the Sydney community by providing tax advice and advocacy, empowering individuals and small businesses through community education, and to remove systemic injustice by advocating for tax reform. Under the supervision of experienced tax practitioners, the Tax Clinic also offers student volunteers an opportunity to work for disadvantaged clients on case, education and policy files.
The Tax Clinic is currently calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) for its Pro Bono Network. The Pro Bono Network provides a platform for pro bono work from both accounting firms, law firms, and barristers’ chambers ready and willing to represent potential clients in dispute with the ATO.
