The Tax Policy Charitable Trust aims to promote broader tax thinking and positive tax policy.

Learn why we invest in these programmes

  • On high interest topics such as the 2018 Tax Working Group interim and final reports the trusts aspiration is for key industry stakeholders to access decision makers and be able to understand and contribute to positive outcomes.

  • The Tax Policy Lecture Visit will sponsor to New Zealand leading international thinkers on tax policy and help to ensure that tax policy in New Zealand is informed by the best thinking from overseas.

    The Lecture Visit will be discussed and agreed with the visiting candidate; however a multi-day programme is envisaged, including public lectures.

  • The purpose of this award is to provide an opportunity for the recipient of the award to do some short term tax policy related study overseas. The award will be granted to people who are likely to be future tax policy leaders.

    While the results from the Tax Policy Scholarship Award will depend on the agreed programme, it is anticipated that the successful candidate will conduct some independent research, possibly with review by an overseas expert in the relevant area of research. This would assist in developing the candidate as well as fostering overseas networks. An overarching outcome should be a significant contribution to tax policy in New Zealand.
