Richard Wytkin is experienced in taking income tax and GST matters to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and the Small Taxation Claims Tribunal.

Both forums are available when a person is dissatisfied with an objection decision by the Commissioner of Taxation, Australian Tax Office (“ATO”).

We can take clients through the application, conferencing and hearing to obtain a decision or negotiate an outcome with the ATO during the process.

Our experience with the Tribunal is

  • Receiving a favourable decision from the Tribunal to allow an individuals motor car claim in full.
  • Negotiating a settlement with the ATO to completely reverse income tax and penalty adjustments from an audit (tax and penalties in excess of $160,000).
  • Receiving a favourable decision from the Tribunal to reduce the rate of penalties from 25% to 10% for a group of individuals.
  • Negotiating a settlement with the ATO to reduce income tax and penalty adjustments from an audit (tax and penalties of approximately $180,000).
  • Obtaining a full reversal of GST refund disallowed by the ATO (a GST refund of some $330,000)
  • Negotiating a settlement with the ATO to reduce GST, income tax and penalty adjustments from an audit (GST and tax of approximately $100,000)
  • Negotiating a settlement with the ATO to reduce penalties from an audit.
  • (penalties reduced by approximately $38,000)
