Clients are being audited by the Australian Taxation Office and Office of State Revenue
in unprecedented numbers. Whilst the respective regulatory bodies may well provide some form of notice of intent to audit (by way of letter or questionnaire), they may also 'just turn up'.

procedures, rights and obligations from the initial notification.
