Risky Business: Practical Risk Management for Tax Practitioners

Published on 26 Oct 2006 | Took place at City West Function Centre, West Perth, WA

Australia’s increasingly complex tax system means that even the most diligent lawyers and accountants practising in this area face an ever-present risk of possible litigation. The issues surrounding claims against practitioners, and in relation to the available insurance cover, are complex and practitioners cannot afford to be complacent about their possible exposure.

These seminars provide practitioners with a thorough review of the obligations placed on tax advisers, what is required to discharge those obligations, work practice suggestions designed to minimise professional liability risks and lessons that can be learnt from recent cases. The materials examine possible traps for practitioners and issues to watch out for, including a review of professional indemnity insurance.
