Tax Deductions

The Australian taxation system is vast and complex. It has also evolved over many decades of case law and the distinction between tax deductible and non-tax deductible is often imprecise. The Australian Tax Office (“ATO”) can provide guidance and assistance to taxpayers seeking help with their tax affairs, but they are first and foremost there to collect tax, and as much of it as possible. Their advice is oriented to guide you as to how to pay tax and not necessarily to assist you to understand how to not pay tax.

The team at Abbotts assist our clients to achieve a taxation outcome that is correct at law. The opinions of the ATO are not always correct at law and they are not always explained in a manner likely to help a taxpayer achieve certainty about their tax affairs.

We apply a strategic and legal mindset to taxation so as to ensure our clients have the peace of mind that they are paying the correct amount.
