Handling tax audit requires not only technical competence on tax legislation but also a robust strategic approach.  There are different ways in getting the tax audit case settled and they could provide different outcomes. Hence, it is critical to have knowledge of the common approaches in handling tax audit and the skills in negotiation with the IRD in order to manage the tax exposure and the penalty involved at a reasonably acceptable level.


The purpose of this seminar is to provide insights on the common approaches in handling tax audit including formulation of settlement basis and negotiation tactics with the IRD.  The penalty provisions of the Inland Revenue Ordinance will also be explained.  At the end, there is a case sharing section to pinpoint what has been explained during the seminar.



**Members & non-members who enroll in one of the Institute's regular CPD seminars to be held in September and October 2019 can enjoy a reduction of $250 for the "International Tax Law and Practice". Please refer to the order from for more details.**
