The most difficult tasks in corporate tax management can be identifying tax risks and then efficiently dealing with them. From a corporate tax manager’s or adviser’s perspective, that involves a high degree of both technical skill and management expertise, not only in relation to the tax compliance cycle but also in structuring major transactions. From an ATO perspective, tax audits are the traditional tax risk identification and management tool, but increasingly the ATO is publicly communicating their risk concerns to encourage further self-regulation. This presentation addresses a range of tax risk issues, including:
- emerging tax risk practices
- current trends in ATO audit activity
- increasing the efficiency of tax audits
- 'best practice' procedures for internal corporate tax risk management.
