It can be difficult to navigate today’s complex and fast-changing business landscape. At CPA Australia, we’re proud of the crucial role our community continues to play in supporting accounting professionals to perform today and advance tomorrow.
We know you’re being trusted to transform businesses, enhance communities, navigate risks and take on new responsibilities. Throughout it all, we’re your partner for progress. Leveraging our strength, resources and initiatives to help build your skills, connections and support networks.
Together, we achieve a lot. Delivering improved value and service to help you succeed, no matter what career stage you’re in. This includes being your voice on policy, an advisor on topical issues, a guide for career development and a place of community.
Here are some recent examples of how we’ve delivered for you and your fellow CPA Australia members. We look forward to continuing this commitment and support throughout 2022.
Community and advocacy
In 2021, we continued to focus on and enhance our policy and advocacy activities for the benefit of you, and the communities you serve.
11,000+ registrations for Policy and Advocacy webinars
60+ media releases
To help you understand and respond to the many new and ongoing challenges presented by COVID-19, we provided regular updates on managing the workplace, government grants and business support for SMEs. We also developed new initiatives, like our COVID Chat for Business podcast mini-series, to help interpret and untangle key issues for members and businesses.
Tax Time 2021
From a public interest perspective, we worked to educate the community on their tax obligations and what they need to consider at tax time. To support this, we issued four media releases, covering topics like the gig economy, small business, mum and dad investors and top tips for employees this tax time.
Net Zero commitment

In 2021, popular topics includes working from home, government grants and entitlements, employment, and taxation. In June 2021, we even established a dedicated Tax Community to make it easier to search for specific advice and discussion topics.
