NSW Chapter AEN Meeting

Understanding the recent updates to the ATO’s Tax Risk Management and Governance Review guidelines and the role of Internal Audit.
The ATO has intensified its interest in tax corporate governance (TCG) of businesses operating in Australia and has released formal guidance setting out what is considers to be “better practices” in respect of TCG.  The ATO’s Tax Risk Management and Governance Review Guide (the Guide) (first published in 2015 and later expanded in 2017) sets out Board level and Managerial level responsibilities for the management of tax risk, along with a framework for controls and testing.  The Guide was further expanded in April 2018 to explicitly include “better practices” relating to Indirect Tax, solidifying the view that tax corporate governance should be considered through a “whole of tax” lens.
In this session, we will cover:

Why tax risk governance is important to Corporates
-          What controls to look for in assessing a Corporate’s tax risk governance (including now in the area of Indirect Tax); and
-          How to test the effectiveness of those controls in managing the Corporate’s tax risks, in light of the ATO’s updated Guidelines.
