Meet our Vice President Simone Dixon

Strategy Day 

On 28 February we held our annual Strategy Day where we planned for the year ahead. In our April newsletter, we will share the summary and outcomes from the day.

    BER Submission

    We provided a submission to Treasury's consultation on Supporting business adoption of electronic invoicing on 28 February 2022. We support the introduction of the BER and believe it will have a positive impact on adoption as well as allow more small businesses to realise the benefits of eInvoicing.

    Ann White's Panel Discussion at Women in Tech Fest
    DSPANZ Director Ann White will be speaking in the panel: "What men need to bring to the table to help even out the playing field." Ann's thinking is that it’s not just men that need to bring something to the table, women also need to make a few adjustments.

    Check out her session here.

    Until next time,
