Hearings and Dispute Resolution

When SAT is dealing with your proceeding, there are two main types of hearing:

There are also a range of Alternative Dispute Resolution options, which may be recommended for your proceeding.

How will I know about the hearing?

SAT will send all parties a notice of hearing stating the date, time and room number. Most final hearings are held at the SAT offices.

What about proceedings involving $10,000 or less?

You may choose to have it dealt with as a minor proceeding. These issues will be raised at the first directions hearing, and can allow you to have the matter dealt with: without a hearing; without legal representation; or without appeals. For more information see Minor Proceedings.
