Whether it be the increasing complexity and volume of taxation legislation, or the approach of the ATO, disputes regarding the ascertainment and collection of tax continue to divide taxpayers and the Commissioner.
With the valuable opportunity to hear from a former Federal Court Judge on his insight in tax cases, as well as from leading members of the Tax Bar, Big4 accounting firms, an ATO Deputy Commissioner and the Tax Institute's Chartered Tax Adviser of the Year for 2019, the Disputes & Litigation Masterclass is a must attend event for anyone navigating the tax controversy cycle.

Who should attend?
This Masterclass will be of benefit to practitioners across all markets that are involved in any form of tax dispute, providing a unique opportunity to hear key insights from some of the best tax controversy practitioners and a senior ATO Deputy Commissioner. It will also be of benefit to practitioners who are seeking to work more in this area and who wish to come away with a thorough understanding of the current state of play in tax controversy.
