Event Details

Tax law is complex and open to interpretation. Tax disputes are inevitable. Achieving the best possible resolution of disputes requires a combination of knowledge and skills. This four day workshop aims to develop that knowledge and those skills. The course will progress through the life cycle of a tax dispute from risk reviews and audits to appeals to courts and tribunals. Along the way, assessments, objections, alternative dispute resolution and settlements will be considered, among other issues. The focus will be on both the black letter law and practical insights drawn from experience.

The issues covered by the course will include:

  • Assessment powers, risk reviews and audits
  • Information gathering powers and the exceptions to them
  • Position papers, independent review, and the GAAR Panel
  • Private binding rulings
  • Objection and appeal – Administrative Appeals Tribunal or Federal Court?
  • Running a case in the AAT
  • Transfer pricing and BEPS disputes
  • Statements of facts, issues and contentions, and submissions
  • Model litigant obligations, and the Inspector-General of Taxation
  • Declaratory relief and judicial review
  • Alternative dispute resolution
  • Code of settlement practice and model settlement deeds
  • Tax risk management
  • Tax effective writing and written tax advocacy
  • Comparative tax dispute resolution

The course will be led by Alain Musikanth.  Mr Musikanth is a barrister practising from Francis Burt Chambers in commercial litigation, with a focus on professional liability, insurance and contentious tax matters. He has worked in litigation for over 20 years, having spent most of his career practising as a barrister at the independent bar.
