ATO correspondence and myGov
9 October 2015
Further to recent communications in previous news articles in regard to the Australian Tax Office (ATO) moving toward paperless BAS lodgements, if you are an individual or sole trader and currently have a paper business activity statement (BAS) delivery preference and have linked your myGov account to the ATO, then the ATO will no longer send you paper BAS or instalment notices. You will now receive your BAS or instalment notification through your myGov Inbox.
Similarly, if you are an individual, lodging your Income Tax Return and have created a myGov account and linked your account to the ATO, you will receive your notice of assessment directly to your myGov inbox.
Please note if you currently lodge your BAS and instalment notices electronically, there will be no change in the way you manage your affairs.
If you have any questions concerning the change to the ATO’s communication processes please contact your local Boyce accountant.
