Tax Disputes & Investigations - Australia

Expertise across tax disputes

With specialists that have both tax advisory and tax litigation expertise and the ability to call upon all other areas of legal practice, you can rely on our robust resources and transactional experience to help resolve all types of tax disputes.

You will enjoy streamlined matter management – there is no need to separately brief commercial litigators and tax experts, a focus on strategic planning and innovative technology to deal with discovery requests. This approach ensures everything is handled promptly and efficiently.

We provide prospects opinions, prepare voluntary disclosures and ruling requests, assist with Australian Taxation Office (ATO) enquiries, disclosures and responses (including section 264 interviews) and represent clients at panels and meetings.

Early resolution

We have well-established relationships with the ATO, government solicitors and other tax authorities. Our understanding of their approach provides opportunities for early resolution, as we undertake alternative dispute resolution methods and explore avenues for settlement.

For more complex disputes, we engage the best senior and junior counsel from the tax and commercial bar in Australia.

Multinational clients involved in related-party transactions benefit from our international reach and experience in the complex areas of transfer pricing and international tax dispute resolution.

We have a full team specialising in this area.
