ATAINZ supports Accountants & Tax Agents by running courses, conferences and seminars to support Members’ continuing professional development and ensure they are up to date with developments in tax law. ATAINZ also provides resources as well as opportunities for Members to network and share information.

ATAINZ offers Members a comprehensive range of resources that enable them to be at the forefront of current legislative updates and changes. ATAINZ provides a continuing education pathway from ATBA to PTBA.

ATAINZ is one of three IRD approved Advisors. This means that as an institute, we:

1) Have a significant function of giving advice on the operation and effect of tax laws
2) Are subject to a professional code of conduct in giving that advice
3) Are subject to a disciplinary process that enforces compliance with the code of conduct.
