Abstract

The importance of tax intermediaries in the efficient administration of a tax system has been acknowledged y recent theories proposing a partnership framework, or "enhanced relationship" model in the terms adopted by the OECD. For over a decade, the Australian and New Zealand tax administrators have championed such a model as part of their "responsive regulation" initiative. The UK has had its "working together" programme and frameworks for a better relationship with business. This article reports on research conducted in Australia, New Zealand and UK focusing on the aspect of the model which deals with the relationship between the tax administrator and tax practitioners. It will be argued that the goal of forming an enhanced relationship has been problematic in Australasia and largely outside of the control of the tax administrators but that cultural considerations in the UK suggest a more promising outcome.
