Change of name for the Adjudication Unit to Disputes Review Unit

Change of name for the Adjudication Unit in the Office of the Chief Tax Counsel to the Disputes Review Unit (Wāhanga Arotake Wenewene) from 1 July 2013.

The Adjudication Unit in the Office of the Chief Tax Counsel is now called the Disputes Review Unit (Wāhanga Arotake Wenewene) from 1 July 2013.

The new name reflects a slightly broader role and some additional oversight and review functions relating to the tax disputes resolution process that are performed internally.

The Unit is still primarily responsible for conducting adjudication reviews independent of the Service Delivery teams involved in tax disputes. It will also continue to provide Adjudication Reports. There is no change to that function, or what you will see - apart from materials such as letterheads referring to the Disputes Review Unit.

Contact details remain the same, and the primary point of contact remains the Senior Technical & Liaison Advisor in the Office of the Chief Tax Counsel.
