We also understand the dispute and resolution processes and can help you resolve issues as quickly and cooperatively as possible.


Disputing an ATO decision doesn’t necessarily mean litigation, although it is sometimes necessary to clarify a point of law. In recent years, the ATO realized methods such as negotiation and mediation are efficient, respectful, and fair ways to settle disputes.

We can also facilitate the effective and timely outcome for large business taxpayers through an independent review. This process reviews the proposed outcome of an ATO audit and the technical merits before finalisation.

If this is not possible, we help narrow the dispute issues to speed the process. We believe an effective working relationship with revenue authorities delivers superior results.
