The Administrative Appeals Tribunal and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal are the frontline for reviewing adverse objection decisions of the ATO and SRO, but what happens if a Tribunal decides against you? Appeals from the AAT and VCAT to the Federal and Supreme Courts are extremely limited in nature, so it is important tounderstand what aspects of a decision can be appealed. This presentation examines tax appeals from Tribunals including:
- a basic introduction to the appeals process
- consideration of the nature of an appeal from a Tribunal on questions of law
- drafting appropriate questions of law in a notice of appeal
- case studies highlighting problems that can arise with notices of appeal
- appeals from the exercise of administrative discretions
- appeal costs in the Supreme Court.
