Mr Noroozi said “During consultations on my work program last year, various business and tax practitioner groups told me that Tax Office views have undergone so-called “u-turns” on significant interpretative issues or past practices. They were particularly concerned where delayed or perceived changes in Tax Office views were retrospectively applied with adverse consequences. Similar concerns had also been raised with the Assistant Treasurer, the Hon Chris Bowen MP, who has directed me to review this matter.”
