Saber Chartered Accountants will be working closely with the Australian Taxation Office next week.

There are two aspects to the visit:
1 The usual components of the Relationship Manager visits that the ATO tries to arrange with tax agents every 1 to 2 years
- update on ATO developments (such as Portal improvements, Lodgement concessions, plans for future changes)
- provide a profile report for the practice confirming what shows on ATO systems for client numbers & lodgement patterns etc.
- get feedback on what we think the ATO should try and improve on
2. The ATO will outline a project that is underway to deal with outstanding lodgments in a more coordinated way
- providing a list of clients with outstanding lodgments showing which of these the ATO consider higher priority
- get a better understanding of the situation in relation to these clients (the ATO expects some will have extenuating circumstances, some do not respond to our requests for them to bring their information in, some we are no longer in contact with and there may also be other practice management factors for the ATO to take account of)
- look at options for cleaning up the client list accordingly and encouraging a response from our clients with emphasis on those considered higher priority
