Australian Taxation Office and small business (April 2018)
Following the Fairfax/Four Corners investigation in April 2018, the Hon Kelly O’Dwyer MP, Minister for Revenue and Financial Services, requested an inquiry into allegations against the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). The investigation was led by the Treasury and supported by the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman (ASBFEO) and the Inspector-General of Taxation. The ASBFEO examined over 180 cases and submitted a report on constructive advice and solutions.
If you are a small business owner who has experienced heavy handed tactics by the ATO, you are still able to contact the ASBFEO (and remain anonymous).
If you need help with an ATO dispute, or your issue falls outside of this inquiry, contact our Assistance Team on 1300 650 460 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
