Waterhouse Lawyers are experts at dealing with tax debt, particularly when the ATO has garnisheed a taxpayer’s bank accounts or is threatening bankruptcy.

We are generally able to arrange payment plans in even the most dire financial circumstances. In many instances we have successfully applied for reduction of the General Interest Charge.

The ATO is dramatically increasing its use of tax garnishee notices. Under a garnishee notice, the ATO can recover monies from third parties such as banks and employers.

Where the ATO has issued a garnishee notice, we can assist by ensuring the notice has been validly issued and, if so, negotiating the best possible outcome with the ATO for your tax debt.

Saving my life and company

Hello Tania,

I hope this note finds you well.

You may or may not recall our case.

I will keep this short, as I can imagine you are very busy, but wanted to update you of the outcome. After you went into bat for me against the ATO in 2018, due to them issuing a garnishee over the company leaving me nowhere to go.
With your persistence we reached an agreement…saving my life and my company!

In our last conversation you asked me to let you know how we ended up and told me “show them that we would make it”!

Today I am emailing you with an enormous smile on my face…our ATO Super Guarantee Account debt was finalised in August, 2020 and today we received the attached statement from the ATO…as of 8th December, 2020 this is also finalised.
It has not been an easy journey, especially with the additional challenges of COVID…but we survived!

Thankyou Tania from the bottom of my heart, as without you I would not be sitting here typing this email.
May I wish you, your family and colleagues a very Merry Christmas and a safe New Year.

Warm Regards,

Trisha F
