    Tax Debt Negotiation

    Tax debt negotiation with the ATO is hard work. Sometimes it can feel like you’re banging your head against a wall. But believe it or not, the Australian Tax Office has a strict policy in which they must work with businesses to solve their ATO problems.

    What that means is that you just need to do the right thing, understand the ATO requirements and negotiate well. If you do this you can expect a fair outcome.

    There are three initial and very important steps to finding a solution to your tax debt problems:

    1. Let the ATO know that you’re not just ignoring them.
    2. Let them know that you’re willing to compromise to find a solution
    3. Let them know that you’re taking action to appoint a professional company to deal with the ATO directly on your behalf.

    If the ATO is aware that you’re actively resolving your tax debt problem, you most likely won’t receive any further or harsher penalties for failing to take action. This is important because, in efforts to encourage businesses to take accountability for their tax obligations, they continue to implement harsher measures including legal action against businesses and even company directors if the situation does not improve.

    Tax Debt Solutions

    There are a small number of ways to solve your tax debt problem.

    One of the quickest ways to relieve yourself from the pains of tax debt and get a great outcome is to make an offer that involves an upfront payment. This, however, requires you to have savings or a way to leverage extra money.

    There are services that we provide that can help you to gain access to the funding you need quickly, you can read on to learn more.

    Successful Stories From Our Clients


    Our team’s unique experience and extensive skill has assisted countless Perth business owners to move past financial strive and work towards a bright and successful future. Here are some of our success stories:

    Miranda was struggling to meet her 12-month payment arrangements with the ATO and, as 12-month arrangements are the most that the ATO will grant, Miranda felt that her financial position was a lost cause. After speaking with Lawrence Corporate Solutions, however, Miranda’s confidence was restored. Lawrence Corporate Solutions successfully negotiated a 24-month extended payment arrangement with the ATO, giving Miranda the breathing room that she needed to get back to running her business.

    Sharon found herself being chased by the ATO for a mounting tax debt, and as her spouse had recently been unable work, it couldn’t have come at a worse time. With constant calls and letters, Sharon welcomed Empire Corporate Services stepping in and liaising with the ATO on her behalf. In the end, Sharon prevailed with a $79,904.62 remittance before the final balance was paid out.

    After an accident that rendered David unable to work, he was forced to use his tax savings to live on. Very worried and not sure where to turn, Empire Corporate Services worked closely on David’s case and secured him an interest remittance of nearly $7,000 to cope with his financial stress.

    With a mountain of ATO penalties (including the dreaded General Interest Charges (GIC), Failure to Lodge (FTL) penalties and business stresses mounting, Shane was in a dire financial position. On Shane’s behalf, Empire Corporate Services was able to remit over $34,000 after just one phone call. Shane’s headaches cleared and it was back to furthering his business!

    When Sam’s major debtor went into $2m liquidation, Sam’s business hit a pivotal crossroads. Based on the guidance of his previous advisors, Sam felt his only option was to go bankrupt. With the help of Empire Corporate Services, Sam got his business valued and sold, paid back the bank debt owing and additional funding in place for all other unsecured creditors… all within a fast turnaround of just 6 weeks.

    Mitchell came in for a general financial review to set his business on the right path to grow. Upon reviewing Mitchell’s financial structure, Empire Corporate Services discovered that Mitchell had ATO debts totaling more than $550,000… and Mitchell was totally unaware of what he owed. After extensive work in tracking back over Mitchell’s previous returns and BAS’s (as well as righting the submission errors that Mitchell had made), Empire Corporate Services successfully helped Mitchell receive remission of interests of his debts, totaling $320,000.

    For a long time Kate didn’t realise… but the ATO had placed $10,000 in interest and fees on top of her tax bill after a she had previously filed a claim incorrectly. Understandably, Kate was frightened about what might happen to her. Lawrence Corporate Solutions stepped in on her behalf and successfully negotiated for a substantial reduction in the outstanding ATO balance. Kate went from owing $10,000 to receiving a $2,000 refund.
