Contentious Tax

Published on 09 Sep 2014 | Took place at City West Receptions, West Perth, WA

Once you’ve been notified of the outcome of an audit, what happens next? Do you have a plan for dealing with any amended assessments arising from an audit? What issues should you consider if your client or your business elects to object against an amended assessment? If the ATO disallows an objection, should you dispute the objection decision before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) or the Federal Court of Australia, or would Alternative Dispute Resolution be more appropriate?

This event provided an overview of the lifecycle of an ATO dispute from the issue of an amended assessment through to litigation and, or settlement:

  • disputing the Commissioner’s assessment or amended assessment
  • taking the matter to the AAT and proving your case
  • settling the matter by way of alternative dispute resolution.
