Public Groups Engagement (Indirect Tax) Compliance risk manual – Chapter 1
The PGE (Indirect Tax) Compliance risk manual is a comprehensive instructional resource to support staff undertaking compliance work associated with the specific risks for indirect taxes in the large business market.
The manual is an essential tool for compliance staff in understanding and testing the risks to be addressed. It provides guidance about gathering appropriate evidence, so they can make timely and sustainable decisions in a coherent and consistent way.
The manual is an integrated tool compiled by subject matter experts within the Indirect Tax business and service line. It links to more detailed information about work processes and systems available on our intranet.
By working closely with large taxpayers and their intermediaries we support voluntary compliance with goods and services tax (GST) and excise and aim to foster relationships based on cooperation, openness and mutual accountability.
This manual may provide insights and technical knowledge about how we perform this valuable and complex work.
