Just about everything you do in business has a tax implication. But sometimes there are tax issues because of the things your business didn’t do. As such, our tax practice is twofold.
Proactive and reactive tax advice
Firstly, we provide proactive tax advice by helping you map out strategies for minimising your tax liability in day-to-day operations and also from larger scale transactions and investments. Should your business need to restructure for any reason – we also have you covered there.
The second part of our tax practice is specific to dealing with challenges brought on by the tax authorities, namely the Australian Taxation Office and the State Revenue Offices.
Every argument is different – and not every argument can be won. But our tax lawyers have a significant amount of experience and nous to help you get the best possible outcome based on your position.
Given the aggressive nature of the authorities, we strongly believe that preventing disputes is the best strategy for most businesses. Our team proactively ensures that things don’t ‘fall through the cracks’ and that compliance is the best strategy. But fights inevitably occur from time to time – and when they do, we have got your back. Recently, a client told us “You have provided immense satisfaction at arriving at a victory”.
You’ll want the Madgwicks tax team as a partner to your business. We will ensure things run as smoothly as possible and that your dealings with the authorities are kept to as little as possible. But if you’re in an argument with the ATO or State Revenue Office, we will assess your position – and act accordingly. Regardless, you’ll be in a better position than before you called.
