Voluntary disclosure – meaning and definition

What is a voluntary disclosure?

A voluntary disclosure is when a taxpayer identifies errors in returns they have filed. It may result in increased tax but often it’s a way to mitigate penalties on these. The IRD will review the voluntary disclosure and may take further action if required.
