A member must not knowingly be associated with reports, returns, communications or other information where he/she believes that the information:

  • Contains a material false or misleading statement;
  • Contains statements or information furnished recklessly; or
  • Omits or obscures information required to be included where such omission or obscurity would be misleading.

Where a registered tax practitioner becomes aware that the above has occurred he must cease to represent the taxpayer concerned if the taxpayer does not remedy the situation.
