Where you or your business has received a tax assessment from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) that you disagree with, it is your legal right to apply for an objection. However, given only one objection may be lodged for each ATO assessment and there are strict time limits that apply, it is imperative that you seek legal advice as soon as possible after you receive an assessment that you believe is or may be incorrect.

Any objection to an ATO assessment must be based on an error in fact or law and will not be valid unless it states “fully and in detail” the grounds on which the taxpayer is relying. If the objection is rejected by the ATO and the taxpayer wishes to appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal or the Federal Court, they will generally be limited to the arguments stated within their objection.

For these reasons, meticulous and comprehensive assistance from a taxation specialist is essential to ensure you have the best chance of successfully pursuing your objection.

Our team at Dormer Stanhope can provide you with the advice you require about your prospects of successfully lodging an objection to your assessment, assist with the preparation of your objection, and represent you in any meetings, negotiations, settlements and appeals as they arise.

Whether you are unsure whether your assessment is correct, or are certain that a mistake has been made, contact Dormer Stanhope and we will help you gain an understanding of your options for resolving the disagreement and if necessary, assist you throughout the process of making an objection and any subsequent dispute resolution process or appeals.
