Common Areas of ATO Tax Dispute:

  1. Income Insights: Sometimes, what you think you earned and what the ATO thinks might not align. Let’s get that straightened out.
  2. Deduction Dilemmas: Claiming deductions is an art, and we’re here to help make sure your masterpiece is clear and convincing.
  3. GST and BAS Bumps: If you’re running a business, GST and Business Activity Statements (BAS) can be tricky. We’ll help you navigate these financial waters smoothly.

How We Navigate ATO Disputes Together:

  1. Friendly Chats with the ATO: First things first, let’s have a friendly chat with the ATO. Understanding each other’s perspectives can often solve issues before they become big problems.
  2. Raise Your Voice with an Objection: If a friendly chat doesn’t do the trick, we’re ready to raise our voices—on paper. We’ll write up an objection that clearly explains why we think the ATO might be seeing things a bit differently.
  3. Let’s Talk it Out (ADR): If things get a bit heated, we can bring in some neutral voices to help mediate. It’s like bringing in a referee to make sure the game is fair.
  4. Taking it Up a Notch: If we still can’t find common ground, we’re ready to take it up a notch and get the courts involved.
