Opportunities to resolve a dispute

Dispute resolution processes may help to resolve a dispute at any stage including:

  • after we issue a position paper during an audit
  • under a legislative process and during an independent review at the objection stage before a final decision is made
  • under a legislative process and during a further independent review at the litigation stage.

Early engagement and direct negotiation are our primary means of avoiding, minimising and resolving disputes early. We also fund some litigation under our Test case litigation program to clarify the law.
