We are committed to providing you with advice and information you can rely on.
We make every effort to ensure that our advice and information is correct. If you follow advice in this publication and it turns out to be incorrect, or it is misleading and you make a mistake as a result, we must still apply the law correctly. If that means you owe us money, we must ask you to pay it. However, we will not charge you a penalty or interest if you acted reasonably and in good faith.
If you make an honest mistake when you try to follow our advice and you owe us money as a result, we will not charge you a penalty. However, we will ask you to pay the money, and we may also charge you interest.
If correcting the mistake means we owe you money, we will pay it to you. We will also pay you any interest you are entitled to.
If you feel this publication does not fully cover your circumstances, please seek help from the Tax Office or a professional adviser.
