Dealing with tax audits paper

Published on 28 May 08 by NEW SOUTH WALES DIVISION, THE TAX INSTITUTE

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.
