Tax Law

Tax Law

Taxes are a constant topic of discussion.  It seems like the rich know all these strategies to minimise their taxes.  They pay these fancy accountants and lawyers.  They know the loopholes.  You can know how the tax laws work and get access to the same information as everyone else.

The ATO or the state revenue office audit and review small businesses all the time.  Why don’t they target the rich?  Or the big companies?  They say they do but when you are dealing with the ATO it doesn’t feel like it sometimes.  Not when you are a small business owner, struggling to grow your business, and being hit with an audit or review and told you need to pay.

The tax law is the same for all Australians.  The only difference is access to quality information and knowing your rights.

Feel that sense of confidence from knowing your taxes are correct and comply with the law.

Be informed.

Tax Law

The key to resolving any dispute is knowing where you stand and then making a decision based on accurate information.

Usually the hardest part is working out where you stand so you can make a sound decision.

It doesn’t matter if its a tax issue or dispute, a commercial law or contracts issue, a business issue, family law (including divorce, custody, wills), a property dispute, an issue on employment law, insolvency, migration, asset protection or defamation.  The whole wide range of laws come down to one principle:  know where you stand first and then make a sound decision found that foundation.

This means working out what your rights are, who to call, or what to read.  Everyone seems to be an expert and there is always someone out there who speaks with great confidence but doesn’t know what they are doing.  Its hard to find the right answer or know if what you are looking at is right.

We are hoping that the information we provide on this website helps you work out where you stand, or at least puts you on the right track.  Be it an issue with the ATO, the OSR (Revenue NSW or the state revenue office of any state), a commercial dispute, debt recovery dispute with a creditor or debtor, an issue with a liquidator who is probably chasing you for a payment of some kind, it doesn’t matter.

We are always happy to recommend lawyers and other professionals if you need help – tax lawyers, commercial lawyers, insolvency lawyers, family lawyers, property lawyers, wills lawyers, migration lawyers, accountants – in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth or national.  We have a broad network developed over decades of collective practice.

At the end of the day, the only way to get through a situation is to know where you stand and what your options are.
