Registered tax agents play an important role in helping taxpayers meet their tax and superannuation lodgement obligations. To assist with management of the taxation compliance workload, the ATO provides registered agents an annual lodgement program to accommodate progressive document lodgement over a 12-month period.
To manage the performance requirements of the lodgement program, the ATO has formulated a program framework for agents such as Abbotts to adhere to. The framework recognises agents who have good practice management, lodge electronically and are consistently on time.
The framework involves registered tax agents and the lodgment of:
- Tax Returns (for all entity types)
- Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) returns.
The ATO has provided feedback to Abbotts for our excellent efforts over the last financial year. In the 18-19 lodgement program we have exceeded the on-time lodgement performance benchmark of 85%.
