Every legal transaction gives rise to taxation issues. Identifying, understanding, evaluating and dealing with tax risk is critical, whether undertaking a significant transaction or day-to-day business matters.

Our tax team operates nationally, with a dedicated team of specialist tax lawyers possessing a depth of experience in all direct and indirect taxes.

We have a strong focus on transactional work, including M&A, tax due diligence, cross-border investment (inbound and outbound), private equity investment, funds establishment and management, major projects and infrastructure, capital markets and finance, property development and real estate, and corporate restructures. We work closely with other practice groups at the firm, including corporate, banking and finance, and real estate, to deliver seamless, timely, commercial and efficient outcomes.

We combine exceptional knowledge of Australia’s tax regime with international best practice and experience. Our strong track record has led to our involvement in broader tax policy discussions through representation on industry bodies and government consultations, providing us with invaluable insight into the policy direction that can influence transactions.

We also regularly represent clients in tax controversy matters, including audits, disputes, obtaining rulings, other engagement with tax authorities and tax litigation.

Corrs is the Australian member of Taxand, the world’s largest independent tax organisation, meaning our tax team is globally connected and equipped to handle cross-border tax issues. We can and do call on the assistance of specialist tax advisory firms in over 50 countries to ensure any of our clients' cross-border tax issues are addressed.
