  • About us

    As the principal revenue collection agency of the Australian Government, the Australian Taxation Office also delivers various social and economic benefit and incentive programs.

    We administer major aspects of Australia's superannuation system, act as custodian of the Australian Business Register and manager of business operations of the Australian Valuation Office.

    Who we are

    The role of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is to ensure the community has confidence in the administration of Australia's taxation and superannuation systems.

    The taxation and superannuation systems are part of Australia's social and economic infrastructure. A major part of our administration of these systems is emphasising to the community the importance of willing and proper participation in underpinning nation building.

    Our strategic direction

    Our vision for the future is that we are a leading tax and superannuation administration, known for our contemporary service, expertise and integrity.

    How we do things

    Our work is managed by our Executive and delivered through business and service lines. We work within important frameworks and models, such as the compliance model, integrity framework, Taxpayers' Charter and service standards. These are central to how we work.

    Tenders and procurement

    We have some specific requirements for businesses and individuals who we procure goods and services from or who tender for our business. For organisations doing business with the ATO, our ABN number is 51 824 753 556.

    Contact us

    You can contact us by phone, in writing or by visiting us.

    We also have helpful contact points for Indigenous Australians, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people who are deaf or have a hearing or speech impairment.

    There are special contact details if you want to make a suggestion or complaint, are a member of the media, need to report ATO fraud or corruption, tax evasion or a tax planning scheme.
