Dealing with revenue authorities and resolving conflicts paper


The complexity of our Tax Laws means that every step in business expansion, from choosing a structure, managing the workforce, expanding offshore or planning for retirement, has to be carefully considered to minimise the risk of unpleasant surprises and unhappy clients. This paper considers how to limit the damage when things go off the rails, and includes:

  • managing audits and negotiating with revenue authorities
  • objections and appeals
  • penalties
  • prosecutions
  • debt management, including director liabilities.
