The Institute of Public Accountants (IPA) has welcomed the appointment of the Michael Sukkar MP to the position of Assistant Minister to the Treasurer.

“Mr Sukkar will bring a great level of knowledge and experience to the role of Assistant Minister to the Treasurer given his professional background as an accomplished tax lawyer and demonstrated commitment to small business,” said IPA chief executive officer, Andrew Conway.

“We look forward to working with Michael to ensure the issues of smaller businesses and vital role that public accountants play in our community are at the forefront of policy considerations,” Mr Conway said.
