At some stage, most small to medium enterprises, will be subject to the ATO’s compliance program, which includes some form of tax audit or investigation. Dealing with audits is a time consuming and expensive affair that could leave you as a business owner with an unexpected bill running into thousands of dollars.
Tax Audit Insurance covers the professional fees that an accountant would charge to help you respond to an official enquiry, review, investigation or audit of returns lodged with the Australian Tax Office or other Federal, State or Territory government authority, agency or body.
We ensure your Tax Probe Insurance Policy protects you against professional fees associated with audits and other official investigations, such as:
- Australian Tax Office Income Tax Audit, Fringe Benefits Tax Audit and Capital Gains Tax Audits,
- WorkCover Authority Audit of WorkCover returns, and
- Payroll Tax Audits
Note: ATO Risk Reviews is a process whereby the ATO makes a determination of a large business’ taxation compliance profile and the most appropriate response (ie whether it needs to take steps to actively enforce tax laws, assist a large business in the self regulation process or whether a large business’ standard of compliance is such that the ATO is comfortable with self regulation).
