This part of the SAT website outlines the different types of ‘matters’ we deal with at SAT.

‘Matter’ is the name used for the whole of your legal issue - from your application through to the final orders.

This isn’t an exhaustive list - for a full list of the matters we can hear, visit the jurisdiction page or start an application through the SAT Application Wizard. The first step of the Application Wizard is to choose the legislation you are going to apply under.
