Settlement by agreement: general: importance of clarity

The object of a negotiated settlement is to achieve a final, clear agreement with a taxpayer or his/her representatives. Care must be taken to ensure that there are no unforeseen consequences in agreements that are reached.

If in doubt take advice before any commitments are made or implied.
