Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills has one of Australia’s leading GST practices. We provide our clients with sound commercial solutions to the GST issues that arise in transactions they undertake as well as in the course of their broader businesses.
Our team regularly assists clients with Australian Taxation Office interactions, audits and disputes. We have been successfully dealing with GST audits and rulings for clients since the GST regime was first introduced in Australia.
On major transactions, we work seamlessly with our corporate tax and Herbert Smith Freehills colleagues to ensure that GST is appropriately considered when structuring transactions and is addressed when transactions are implemented.
We have developed deep industry specialisation in real estate, financial services and energy and resources through our participation in industry bodies since the inception of the GST and our leading role in on-going lobbying on legislative and administrative changes.
