Tax risk management is more critical today than ever before. Whether you are an inhouse counsel or a professional adviser, getting it wrong has implications far beyond the hip pocket. This paper outlines risk management strategies for larger corporates and professional advisers:

  • risk management - what it means
  • applying it to business
  • applying it in your practice.
It also deals with issues such as ensuring you have appropriate processes, systems, documentation and record keeping in place. Should you seek that Private Ruling or do you have a Reasonably Arguable position - have you even made a considered choice? What happens if you get it wrong?
