In this episode David Boyar talks Regtech, regulation technology. And we're fortunate to hear from Chris Jordan, the Australian Commissioner for Taxation, about his tips for the future, the tech focus of the ATO and why tech changes results in tax agents expecting more from regulators, and the knock-on effect for your clients.
David also speaks about new RegTech, like e-invoicing, and is joined by Milan Cooper from First AML and Anthony Quinn from Arctic Intelligence to talk about the impact anti-money laundering procedures have had on New Zealand firms and to get a glimpse of what Aussie practitioners can look forward to in the future.
We’ll kick off the conversation with Ron Lesh, the Founder and CEO of BGL Corporate Solutions, a company that's been producing RegTech for 30 years, to have a look at how far RegTech has come.
So what’s RegTech all about and how will it impact us in the future? Listen to find out.
