Tax Appeals from the AAT and VCAT

Published on 19 Nov 2013 | Took place at Tax Institute, Melbourne , VIC

    The Administrative Appeals Tribunal and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal are the front line for reviewing adverse objection decisions of the ATO and SRO, but what happens if a Tribunal decides against you? Appeals from the AAT and VCAT to the Federal and Supreme Courts are extremely limited in nature, so it is important to understand what aspects of a decision can be appealed. This presentation examines tax appeals from Tribunals including:
  • a basic introduction to the appeals process
  • consideration of the nature of an appeal from a Tribunal on questions of law
  • drafting appropriate questions of law in a notice of appeal
  • case studies highlighting problems that can arise with notices of appeal
  • appeals from the exercise of administrative discretions
  • appeal costs in the Supreme Court.
