Fail to Furnish an Approved Form – Adjourned Undertaking

This is a case study on failure to lodge approved taxation documents under the Tax Administration Act 1953 resulting in a good behaviour bond without conviction.
Our client was charged with several offences over a period of several years relating to failing to lodge approved taxation documents under the Tax Administration Act 1953 (Cth). He was a director of two companies and a conviction may have resulted in his termination from these directorships. Our client had no prior court history.
Shaun Pascoe represented our client at the Heidelberg Magistrates’ Court.

In submissions that occurred over two separate dates, we were able to demonstrate that the failures to comply with the Tax Act were due to significant extenuating circumstances. We further highlighted the mitigatory aspects of the offences in question. Excellent testimonial material was also tendered, emphasising our client’s good character.
Our client was placed on a good behaviour bond without conviction.
