    How does the ATO treat disbursements when it comes to putting them in a tax invoice to a client and (1) the disbursement is paid out of the trust account or (2) the disbursement is paid out of general account and the client reimburses the general account for the amount of the disbursement.

    We encourage you to provide feedback on your experiences in relation to garnishees and freezing orders.

    In particular we would like your responses to the following questions:
    • What are your observations about the impact of our use of garnishees or freezing orders in relation to uncollected debt?
    • Do you have any examples of where our use of either a garnishee (in preference to a freezing order) or freezing order (in preference to a garnishee) could have achieved a better outcome for the client and for us?
    • Do you think we should provide you with further guidance regarding when we use garnishees or freezing orders in debt matters?

    You can respond to these questions by posting on this discussion board. You will need to be a registered member of the online Let’s Talk community to complete your post. If you are not already a registered member, you can register here.

    Consultation is open until 28 July 2017.

    The Legal Practitioners Round Table to discuss the impact of garnishee and freezing orders further with the legal profession will take place in August 2017. Further information about the membership of the Legal Professional Round Table and minutes from the meetings can be found here.
