As part of the 2016-17 Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook, the Australian Taxation Office will be allowed to disclose to Credit Reporting Bureaus the tax debt information of businesses that have not satisfactorily engaged with them. This will initially apply to businesses that have an ABN and debts of greater than $10,000 that are at least 90 days overdue.
If your business has outstanding debts with the ATO, we encourage you to talk with the ATO to establish a plan to get back up to date. If you are not comfortable to do this on your own, this is something we assist our clients with.
