What happens if I get it wrong? Am I just down in the dumps or also down in the dock? presentation


This presentation focusses on the non-civil which can flow from getting the management of tax risk wrong, including:

  • structure of the relevant provisions of the Criminal Code Act 1995
  • results of recent prosecutions - has the law changed?
  • is the actual tax position relevant to or needed in a prosecution?
  • the impact of a Round Robin
  • ATO Prosecution Policy
  • does it matter if I am an employee rather than a principal?
  • unresolved issues
  • what other risks lurk?
