Tax Disputes

Tax Dispute Lawyer and Tax Litigation Lawyer Sydney

Tax disputes arise when the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or a State Revenue Authority believes something doesn’t look right to them. The best time to deal with such an issue is now. Whether it is in the pre-audit or audit stage, capturing the issue before an assessment is raised is the best objective and one a tax dispute lawyer can quickly identify. If the assessment has been raised, management is needed for not only the essential tax claim but also for the debt recovery processes that will commence.

Australia's Revenue Authorities and especially the Australian Taxation Office, use sophisticated techniques to not only discover what they will consider to be tax-wrongdoings, but they employ an array of information gathering techniques that require careful management. If you find yourself in this situation a tax litigation lawyer can help you.

No matter the nature or size of the tax dispute, care is needed. It is also important to understand that whilst the ATO can be sympathetic, they are required to apply the law to the circumstances as they see these. This is why it takes an experienced tax dispute lawyer with up-to-date knowledge of laws, practices and rulings to manage a tax dispute or tax debt recovery.
