Being involved with tax fraud can land you in jail - never a participant nor a helper be paper


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

This paper covers:

  • common misconceptions and fallacies
  • identifying and being wary of potential indicators
  • how much reliance can you place on your client?
  • Saxby: even a simple objection can create an exposure
  • is the ATO aware more than you?
  • 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?
