Transaction taxes like GST represent both a risk and an opportunity for your business. Insufficient consideration of the GST consequences of transactions can result in competitive disadvantage. Identifying and managing GST risk in the business is very different to corporate income tax. 

The ATO sees ‘integrity of business systems’ issues as one of the main GST risks for large business. ‘Best practice’ GST compliance and reporting are vital to free up scarce resources to concentrate on higher-value work. Our national GST team works across all industry sectors, helping our clients manage their GST risk and maximise their GST position.
