Activities » Wineskills


We are thrilled to re-launch the ‘Wineskills’ wine-business training services.  We have an exciting program of training modules to roll out over the coming months.  WFA Members can access these modules either free of charge, or at discounted rates, depending on the module.

Wineskills: WET - Back to Basics

The WET – Back to Basics seminars will focus on a refresher of the Wine Equalisation Tax (WET) system for winemaking businesses, and wine-associated businesses, that are eligible to claim the WET Rebate.  The session aims to provide winemaking businesses and other associated businesses in the wine sector, an opportunity to ensure they are across the WET System as it stands, and ensure their business practices are compliant with the WET rules.  This session offers a technical overview of the WET system as it stands to date, with dedicated time for one-on-one Q&A's for all participants with the ATO representatives.

Wineskills training modules will run as a fee-for-service, however the WET-Back to Basics seminar will be free of charge to current financial WFA Members.
