Who is the ATO?
The Australian Taxation Office is the body responsible for investigating and enforcing tax law in Australia. They investigate and take action against individuals if they are believed to have violated tax laws which can be very stressful, time consuming and expensive.

“One of my accounting clients received an incorrect Australian Tax Office decision which amended business and personal tax returns to include previously undisclosed income. I put the client in touch with the Butlers team as I appreciated the complexity of the matter, and knew they were highly experienced in the area. The matter was settled at a conciliation conference, resulting in a significant reduction of the client’s tax liability, penalties and interest. Fantastic result and handling of a complicated matter.”
