On Friday 21.8.2020, The Tax Institute posted a report by their Senior Advocate: Robyn Jacobson entitled A stocktake of unenacted measures in their weekly emailed newsletter: TaxVine (No.32 of 21.8.20). This covers things merely announced (5 items), announced measures introduced as a Bill (10 items), that is still before Parliament and recently enacted measures (6 items). This is a fiercesome list – partly explained by the shadow of the COVIC pandemic and partly a surprise. I also make some editorial comments about how unnecessary is ‘legislation by press release’.
