We can help you show the Australian Taxation Office how your governance framework meets their expectations.
A second opinion can be invaluable. Especially when a filing position has been challenged and the firm originally advising is assisting with the defence. Good governance suggests it is in the best interests of the organisation to have the position reviewed. This may give additional comfort to stakeholders, provide insights that guide the defence, or give an assessment of risk that informs legal strategy.
For business operating across borders, understanding Australia’s international tax system is crucial. We guide you through the interaction of our domestic rules with our double tax treaties and transfer pricing rules. As well as our newer “anti-avoidance” rules such as our anti-hybrid, MAAL, DPT and “intangible asset deduction denial” rules.
Being prepared for one of the many types of Australian Taxation Office reviews can make all the difference. We can assist you with pre-audit preparation, guide you through the process and help you manage the resourcing needed to bring a review to a successful conclusion. Our breath of experience, ,including litigation, helps us consider the bigger picture. It is now not enough to simply focus on the first technical issue raised by the Australian Taxation Office. You must also consider where their focus may shift in the future of the review, especially any risk in relation to our General Anti Avoidance Rule (Part IVA) and related provisions.
