About the event

Disputes are an inevitable part of taxation and seem to be on the rise. Achieving the best possible outcome of a dispute is key for all parties involved. This requires a knowledge of the taxpayer’s rights and how best to exercise them in a robust yet respectful way when engaging with the ATO.

 A response to an ATO position paper is generally the last chance for a taxpayer to press their case in detail in a relatively informal manner. Once an assessment or amended assessment has issued, a taxpayer’s options for disputing a liability narrow markedly, largely being limited to the procedure set out in Part IVC of the Taxation Administration Act. 

This 2 hour seminar will look at some of the practical issues that have encountered in dealing with the ATO of late, practical approaches to disputing an assessment with the ATO, and a review of the ATO’s new strategies to resolve disputes for small business taxpayers and finished off with a panel discussion on how we can engage with the ATO on behalf of clients to obtain the best outcomes for all involved.
