Resource Taxation | UWA Law School | Wednesday, 13. March 2019

Tax law is complex and open to interpretation. Tax disputes are inevitable. Achieving the best possible resolution of disputes requires a combination of knowledge and skills. This four day workshop aims to develop that knowledge and those skills. The course will progress through the life cycle of a tax dispute from risk reviews and audits to appeals to courts and tribunals. Along the way, assessments, objections, alternative dispute resolution and settlements will be considered, among other issues. The focus will be on both the black letter law and practical insights drawn from experience.
The issues covered by the course will include:

Non-renewable taxes
Resource tax policy
Taxation on the acquisition or disposal of mining and petroleum assets
Taxation on the acquisition or disposal of mining and petroleum companies
Operational tax matters
International tax matters such as offshore marketing hubs and outbound investment in resource project
