Pages: pp.22-26

Taxpayers who use the services of tax agents will face increased costs under the proposed new tax agent services regime and may not be able to limit the scope of engagements by asking agents to make factual assumptions. This article looks at the impact of the proposed measures and urges a broader application of the provisions removing penalties for tax shortfalls arising from tax agent errors and the removal of the requirement for tax agents to verify their clients' instructions.
