Budget 2016: Other Measures

May 2016

The ATO will be receiving a bigger allocation of funds to form a 'tax avoidance' taskforce to help them pursue companies that fall foul of the multinational tax requirements.  

$678.9 million for new ATO anti-avoidance taskforce

A new anti-avoidance taskforce will undertake "enhanced compliance activities" targeting multinationals, large public and private groups and high wealth individuals.

This measure provides the ATO with a 55% increase in funding for compliance programs targeting multinationals and high wealth individuals, with a 43% increase in resources devoted to tackling multinationals (including ramping up to an additional 390 average staffing level per year).  

Information sharing between the ATO and ASIC will also be improved.
