Alternative dispute resolution presentation

Published on 16 May 13 by NEW SOUTH WALES DIVISION, THE TAX INSTITUTE

A highly practical presentation that will give you confidence to explore ADR options with the ATO.

In particular, the presentation covers:

  • What is in it for taxpayers and the ATO?
  • What are the benefits of ADR for each of the individuals and micro-enterprises, SME and the LB&I sectors? Is ADR more suited to one or more of these sectors?
  • How do taxpayers start the ADR ball rolling? When should this occur?
  • What matters are best dealt with via ADR?
  • What happens at an ADR “hearing”?
  • What outcomes can be achieved compared to traditional litigation?
