Our specialist tax team was established with the purpose of enabling taxpayers to obtain controlled and cost-effective tax advice.

We have the experience and expertise and work with a Tax Barrister who can take your dispute right through to the Court of Appeal if required.

Tax Opinions

Our tax specialists can provide written tax advice on a wide range of issues.

If you require a legal opinion about tax, we work with our Tax Barrister to assist with this.

We can offer fixed fees which will include:

  • A Summary of the background and issues to be addressed.
  • The questions to be addressed.
  • A detailed opinion with appropriate references to statute and case law.
  • Suggested further areas to be researched if appropriate.

Tax Disputes

If you disagree on an assessment made by the IRD and they have been unable to resolve the issue with you, there is a formal disputes process to follow to enable you to resolve the matter so that it doesn’t have to go to Court.

Our specialist tax team can negotiate matters on your behalf with the Inland Revenue Department and handle all standard matters including Voluntary Disclosures, risk reviews and tax audits. When more complex issues are involved, we would work with our associated Tax Barrister.

Other services available include assistance with Notices of Proposed Adjustment, Notices of Response, Tax Review Authority matters and Binding Ruling Applications.

Potential IRD penalties include:

  • Lack of reasonable care – 20%
  • Unacceptable tax position – 20%
  • Gross carelessness – 40%
  • Abusive tax position – 100%
  • Evasion – 150%.
