Guidance on tax and superannuation measures
When new tax and superannuation measures and legislation are introduced, we provide practical guidance for taxpayers deciding whether to follow the existing law or attempt to anticipate the proposed changes.
We also provide advice about our administrative approach to specific proposed law changes.
Our advice covers the options available to taxpayers and the consequences of choosing particular options. It also covers what action, if any, we'll take during the period until the final outcome of a proposed law change is known.
