ATO engages SMEs over its digital future

By

ATO has stepped up its efforts to get feedback from small businesses to its proposed Digital by Default initiative which will see the vast bulk of taxation services online as the ATO increasingly becomes a digitally-driven business.

Under the Digital by Default initiative, most small businesses will be required to use the ATO’s digital services to send and receive information and payments.

In a message on its website, and as part of its community consultation process, the ATO says it wants to hear from small business owners to help them better understand the support they may need to transition to digital services, “the approach we take for those who can't use digital services and any concerns you may have”.

The ATO has said it will support those who need help to make the shift from paper to digital, and alternative services will be available for people who are unable to go digital and who qualify for an exemption.

The community consultation process is open until 15 January next year and feedback is via the ATO’s  Let’s Talk: Digital by DefaultExternal Link.
