Dealing with IRD can be expensive, time consuming and frustrating. Our networks, relationships and experience are generally able to deliver an appropriate outcome in a timely manner.

Some of the areas where we have successfully assisted and advocated for our clients are:

  1. Managing formal tax disputes: all the way from IRD risk review through to adjudication
  2. Voluntary disclosures: whether in response to IRD risk review or audit, or unsolicited to reduce or eliminate penalties and possible prosecution risk
  3. Overturning IRD’s attempts to take positions contrary to published policy
  4. Negotiating reductions in penalties: for abusive tax position, unacceptable tax position (and previously unacceptable interpretation), late payment and use of money interest, and mitigation of penalties generally
  5. Tax submissions: to regulatory bodies and government e.g. Cabinet Finance and Expenditure Select committee
