Accidently getting caught up in tax fraud is usually not a risk on your radar - What should you be aware of? paper

Published on 13 Mar 13 by NATIONAL DIVISION, THE TAX INSTITUTE

Like professional negligence, tax fraud is not something that a practitioner normally expects to be involved in or accused of. However it can happen
particularly in a “guilt by association” situation or where a client points the finger of blame to reduce their own level of blame. This paper covers:

  • common misconceptions and fallacies
  • identifying and being wary of potential indicators
  • Saxby: Even a simple objection can create an exposure
  • the access of the ATO to previously unavailable sources of information particularly from secrecy/tax havens and everyday sources
  • increased risks for professional advisers who are caught up in dodgy transactions, including heavier sentencing than five years ago
  • are juries more prepared to join up the dots in tax fraud cases?
