UP tax research recognised at Australasian conference

Posted on March 18, 2019

Mpumi Monageng, Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences’
Department of Taxation, won the award for the best PhD presentation at the Australasian Tax Teachers Association (ATTA) annual conference 2019, which was hosted by Curtin University in Perth from 16 to 18 January. 
 
Ms Monageng researched the effect of reciprocity and social norm nudges on tax compliance. She explains that the winning presentation mainly focused on the background of the study, the research methodology applied and the results from a pilot test conducted on one of the two research methods applied in her study.
 
“The ATTA conference was a great opportunity to meet established researchers and fellow PhD students. I received valuable feedback and ideas about my research. I also had the opportunity to attend other researchers’ presentations to get a better understanding of current topical research areas in my field,” she says.
 
She adds that she formed valuable networks with established researchers in the area of tax compliance with whom she plans to collaborate with in the near future.
 
First hosted in 1989, the ATTA conference provides an environment for tax academics, as well as industry and government professionals, to share research, develop teaching practice and promote network opportunities to advance the discipline.
