There should be a right of appeal against such cases. The committee should have an adequate quorum so that there is an appeals committee or the appeals case determined at the tax appeals tribunal. This means that the regulations for the Tax appeals Tribunal should be amended to include appeals from the Tax agents Committee.

The Committee can not be reporting to the commissioner. The whole section where the committee reports to the commissioner should be done away with.
It should be the duty of the Tax agents committee to deregister and not the commissioner.
