Offering ATO audit assistance when you need it most

Running a business can be tough but dealing with an ATO audit can be downright terrifying. Offering expert assistance and support, we make sure you’re fully prepared and confident throughout the entire process.

Essentially a review of your financial records and tax returns, an ATO audit is conducted to ensure that you have reported all your income and expenses correctly and in accordance with tax laws. If the ATO suspects that there may be discrepancies or errors in your reporting, they may choose to conduct an audit of your business.

Offering comprehensive ATO audit support, we believe the key to success is having the right documentation and records to back up your reported figures.

This is where our ATO audit assistance comes in.

ATO Auditing explained

ATO auditing explained

ATO auditing is a nerve-racking process where the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) digs through your financials and tax information to make sure you’ve paid your dues.

They want to make sure that you’re being truthful about your income and deductions. Anyone, including individuals, businesses, and organisations, can be selected for an ATO audit, and they use various techniques like data matching, tip-offs, or random selection to choose who to audit.

Trust us, an ATO audit is not something you want to go through alone. If it happens to you, give us a call. It’s important to get a professional opinion.

ATO Audit Support FAQs

Audits range from quick examinations of source documents to a more extensive analysis of complex transactions and deductions. They can also cover anywhere from one financial year up to five. The ATO will usually start with a phone call during which they will set a time for a visit.

Its hard to say exactly as their focus changes from year to year but typically you will draw the attention of the ATO if you fail to declare income, claim deductions you are not entitled to or you fail to undertake various compliance activities such as paying your employee super or not correctly reporting PAYG Withholding on your activity statement. If you feel you may be at risk contact Altias immediately and we can undertake an audit risk review and provide you with advice on how to implement systems and processes to reduce your risk moving forward or where we find a discrepancy to work with the ATO to resolve any omissions.

Absolutely not! You need to be very careful with what records you keep and what records you destroy. For example if you have a capital gains tax asset such as an investment property and you hold that property for 10 years. Then you must keep those records for 5 years after the sale of that property. So 15 years! If you are unsure about what to keep and what to throw out, given the benefits of digital scanning, our motto is to keep everything, just scan it into your dropbox, external drive, and keep a copy, especially when it comes to disposal of valuable assets.
