Are you concerned about the costs associated with an ATO audit?

As part of the October 2022 Federal Budget, the Government announced a significant funding boost to extend the ATO’s major compliance programs. This includes additional funds for the Shadow Economy Program and the Tax Avoidance Taskforce of around $1.8 billion (combined) and makes it clear that the ATO has moved into an aggressive compliance mode.

In addition, the government will extend the ATO’s existing Shadow Economy Program for a further three years from 1 July 2023. This measure will allow the ATO to continue its crackdown on businesses operating outside the tax system and is estimated to increase receipts by around $2.1 billion over four years from 2022/23.

These measures strongly indicate that the ATO’s audit coverage of taxpayers will escalate over the next three or four years.
