One of the expectations that came with the introduction of the GST (goods and services tax) in 2000 was a simpler taxation system, but twelve years down the track, little seems to have changed. In fact, almost 70% of tax returns lodged by PAYG (pay as you go) taxpayers are lodged through either tax agents or accountants due to the difficulty of completing the documentation.
There are a number of ways that taxpayers can find themselves on a collision course with the taxation authorities. They may have acted on poor advice from a supposed professional, neglected to lodge returns regularly over a number of years or were caught out doing something illegal or fraudulent. The reasons don’t matter, but what is important is finding the right professional people to assist them when they need it the most.
ABC Legal is staffed by experts in the field of tax law who will meet with you, review the information presented to them and give you an honest and upfront appraisal of what they believe to be the situation. Once having accepted you as a client, they will take the time to discuss the best way to proceed, and make sure the client understands what is involved and the likely result of any decision that is taken from this time forward.
