“Say nothing” is a mantra that does not work in a corporate situation including:
communicating with the board of directors/audit committee
impact of disclosing board papers/directors minutes to the ATO
communicating with the other parts of the management, internal auditors and external auditors
communicating with external advisers
communicating with the ATO
keeping track of all the communications
requests for a BPR
impact of the promoter penalties
appropriate governance protocols
how do you find out what you don’t know but (based on hindsight) you do need to know?
