What our attendees have been saying
 
“Having attended IFPA’s Tax Discussion groups for nigh on two years now, I have found them to be practical, insightful, enjoyable and witty. The speakers’ knowledge of tax law and general day-to-day practice challenges is second to none. The format is highly interactive, the material concise and well-presented. The sessions are scheduled to minimise practice disruption, are great value for money and I’d definitely recommend this to practitioners looking to ensure they are kept abreast of practice matters.”
— Daniel Sammarco, Blueprint Advisory

“The TDG is very informative, practical and a great opportunity to bounce ideas and ask questions amongst my peers about the ever-evolving world of tax. The Tax Notes prepared for each session are easy to read and a very handy tool to refer back to when coming across similar scenarios in my practice.” 
— Paul Sopikiotis, PSCAA Pty Ltd


"When it comes to professional development and the source of my research information in respect to tax and superannuation I place a high value on the quality of the providers .
The IFPA ticks those boxes in all respects. 
The quality of the articles presented are exceptional and clearly provide a practical take away for us professionals seeking to apply complex legislation and guidelines.
The presenters at seminars/webinars clearly outline the heart of any topic and seek practical solutions for the practitioner.
Having been a member of the IFPA super discussion group for a number of years, currently expertly facilitated by Natasha Panagis, this group provides practitioners with a platform to express our concerns in practice with a means of achieving practical solutions amongst professionals and the IFPA community."

     -Frank Sanzari B.Com CA FTI JP, Business Management Network Pty Ltd


"As a sole practitioner finding a resource where likeminded people regularly meet to discuss a specialised field like super is an invaluable tool. The Super Discussion group is that tool. 
The interactive engagement between the presenter, Natasha Panagis and the members providing personal experiences is a great learning opportunity. The sessions highlight areas where more work may need to be done to a reassurance that you’re on the right track. It’s good knowing that you have your own “go to group” when you’re in that moment of uncertainty."

-Fabio Salvatore, Concise Super

"I recently joined the Institute of Financial Professionals Super Discussion Group, presented by Natasha Panagis. The sessions are interactive and engaging. Natasha Panagis has a remarkable ability to guide the discussions and explain complex laws and regulations with great clarity. Aside from the invaluable knowledge gained, the Super Discussion Group also serves as an excellent opportunity to connect with my peers in an interactive discussion, which allows us to address client issues and tackle various topics together. Overall, attending the Super Discussion Group has been a game-changer for my professional growth. From the convenience of accumulating CPD hours to the insightful discussions, networking opportunities, and problem-solving collaboration, this group offers an exceptional platform for superannuation professionals. Highly recommended."

-Gregory Atamian, JJN Accounting
