Emissions trading and tax: a trans-Tasman perspective

Tax

Minter Ellison's national tax team provides clients with innovative tax structuring and advisory services that are independent and cost effective. As one of the largest tax teams of any Australian law firm, we assist clients on the full spectrum of tax laws, including income tax, international tax, capital gains tax, stamp duty, GST and other federal and state taxes. We regularly act on some of Australia's leading transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, restructures and capital raisings, cross-border financing, and project and structured financing.

Our long-standing referral relationships with some of the leading international tax practices in Asia, Europe and the Americas, has allowed us to provide comprehensive advice on some of the largest and most complex cross-border global transactions undertaken in recent years.

Our specialist tax controversy lawyers have strong credentials in dealing with revenue authorities in taxation disputes, from negotiating settlements to appeals in the state and federal courts, through to the High Court of Australia.

Through our ongoing participation in industry associations and specialist tax organisations, we are often invited to comment on current and proposed legislation and rulings.
