    Disclosing a reportable tax position (RTP)

    All material RTPs must be disclosed in the schedule.

    You do not need to disclose an RTP in the schedule if:

    • you have already applied to us for a private ruling that covers the RTP
    • you have already disclosed the position to be taken in your Company tax return 2012 on a Reportable tax position early disclosure form (NAT 74067)
    • the RTP is covered by an advance pricing arrangement (APA) or an application for an APA that has been accepted into our APA program.

    All disclosures of RTPs must be in writing.
