Self assessment has been overhauled but how effective are the changes and how will they impact on tax practice? Topics covered in this paper Include:
- ATO amendment powers - the basic two-year period and exceptions
- changes to the rulings and non-binding advice provisions - the new structure and base provisions
- obtaining and relying on private rulings - wider scope, but some dangers
- penalties - the new penalty regime; reasonably arguable positions; GIC and SIC; and penalty remission procedures.
