McCullough Robertson’s taxation group is a leading Australian legal tax practice.
Taxation law is complex and dynamic, impacting on all business and personal financial decisions.
Our taxation group guides clients through the detail of the taxation law to enable sound decision-making, based on a clear understanding of the taxation risks and benefits of alternative strategies.
We also assist with tax audits and with related settlement negotiations with the Australian Taxation Office and State revenue authorities. We also provide tax advice on restructures, mergers and acquisitions, and on debt and equity fundraisings.
Our taxation group has acted for clients in tax cases before the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and the Full Federal Court.
We act for a wide range of clients from listed company groups, private groups to high wealth individuals. We also provide specialist taxation advice to a large number of accountants, lawyers and financial planners.
A number of our taxation lawyers are dual qualified as Chartered Accountants - allowing us to be as comprehensive as possible in our advice which brings an added dimension to the assistance we can provide.
We have significant experience across a broad spectrum of industries including resources and infrastructure, real estate, aged care and retirement living sectors and agribusiness. Our lawyers also have a significant involvement in capital markets matters including revenue advice on pre-initial public offering restructuring, regulated and unregulated mergers and acquisitions, capital raising such as rights issues and convertible note issues and managed investment scheme arrangements.
Areas in which our taxation lawyers can assist include:
- mergers, acquisitions and divestments
- resources taxes
- tax audits, disputes and litigation
- GST advice and structuring
- other State taxes - payroll tax and land tax, and
- taxation benefits and risks affecting nonprofit organisations.
We adopt a solutions driven approach and the depth of experience of our taxation lawyers ensures clients are provided with innovative and commercially focused outcomes.
