Tax disputes have the ability to become protracted and expensive if not managed strategically. A respectful and professional relationship with the ATO and state revenue authorities, and a detailed knowledge of the processes required to litigate a tax dispute can be central to navigating a successful and commercial outcome.
By engaging a legal tax advisor the commercial sensitivities of your business can be better protected during the document collection stages of a tax dispute and by formulating a whole of life strategy to litigation to avoid early pitfalls.
