Tax audits of all complexions are back in full swing after a lengthy hiatus. Reaching a satisfactory outcome for clients requires a palette of skills, tax technical knowledge, doggedness, tact and a sense of humour (at times).
This paper covers:
- the process - how audits start and proceed to a conclusion
- caring for the client - social skills help
- T-accounts, estimates and section 167
- reaching a settlement
- graduating to criminal proceedings.
