Session 3.3: Indirect taxes and supply chain traps
With Chris Sievers, Victorian Bar

Situations can arise where an entity in a supply chain finds themselves caught with the cost of GST, leaving them with no ability to claim the corresponding credit. This session will explore:

  •  How indirect taxes operate for entities in the supply chain;
  •  The implications of an upstream or downstream entity conducting an enterprise versus a business;
  •  Dealing with the ATO in disagreements over good faith representations of enterprise or retention of 
  •     refunds due to a taxpayer; and
  •  Risk mitigation for supply chain entities.
