Tax and ethics paper


Having regard to the current push for transparency and likely developments over the next 2-3 years, this paper explores how Corporates and Tax Advisers should:

  • define ethics in relation to Tax
  • manage the consideration of tax risk, both financial and reputational
  • differentiate between management of Strategic and Operational Tax Risks
  • revise the application of the traditional three lines of defence to Tax Risk
  • address legacy and current tax disputes and issues with the ATO
  • respond to media enquiry into their tax affairs in this emerging environment.
