The key element of good tax risk management is preparation. The better a taxpayer is prepared for tax reviews and audits, the better the outcome. The best way for a taxpayer to prepare for the types and frequency of Tax Office scrutiny is to:

  • 1. understand the Tax Office’s approach to assessing tax risks of organisations

  • 2. conduct an objective risk assessment

  • 3. manage the Tax Office relationship throughout the lifecycle of a review and audit, and

  • 4. understand tax dispute rules and processes.
