TAX CRIME CASE STUDIES

The ATO, along with our partner agencies, access various information sources and use sophisticated analytics, to identify people who deliberately break the law to either:

  • avoid paying the right amount of tax;
  • claim refunds or other payments they are not entitled to.

These case studies demonstrate how the ATO is effectively cracking down on those who commit tax crime.

SINGLE TAX PAYROLL EXTENDED TO SMALL EMPLOYERS

STP changes the way employers report their employees’ tax and super information to the ATO.

Using payroll or accounting software that offers STP, employers now send their employees’ tax and super information into the ATO each time they run their payroll and pay their employees.

This is a big change for small employers and the deadline of 1 July could be difficult. So, employers with 19 or less employees can start reporting any time from 1 July – 30 September. If they start during this period they will be reporting on time.
