“The ATO continues to strengthen its compliance approach to cross border investment, property groups, the use of company funds (or 'Division 7A'), trusts and wealth-extraction tax avoidance schemes.”

Commenting further on the appointment of Mr Barros, Macpherson Kelley CEO Steve Parker said, “With the ATO taking a more focused approach to compliance, well-informed planning is crucial and Macpherson Kelley is well-positioned to do so".
