Denial of auditors name and report in relation to actions of a tax agent
Tax Practitioners Board did not have the information requested.
From: N.O.T. Happy
Dear Tax Practitioners Board,
i am a SMSF auditor. i lodged a contravention report with the ATO for a fund operated by a tax agent. i did so on the basis that the information provided was a lie. i understand that the ATO do not disclose to me the result of my contravention report.
Accordingly i lodged a complaint with the TPB as i consider such conduct does not fit within the definition of Integrity and Honesty required of tax agents.
I am informed by the Taxation Practitioners Board (TPB) that another auditor was appointed to the fund and that auditor has cleared the trustee of any misdemeanor.
i am satisfied as to my assessment of the position and have asked TPB for the details of that auditor in order to contact him/her to discuss their findings and obtain a copy of their report.
TPB claim that they have no authority to disclose this.to me.
I consider this to be important to be able to fulfill my statutory obligations as an SMSF auditor.
