• Compliance effectiveness

    In the ATO we have designed a methodology to assist in planning and evaluating effective compliance strategies.

    We have developed guidance to explain the compliance effectiveness methodology:

    Measuring compliance effectiveness – applying our methodology (NAT 72342)

    This guide provides an overview of the steps involved in the four phases of the compliance effectiveness methodology.

    Measuring compliance effectiveness – Evaluating effectiveness (NAT 73580)

    This guide provides information on applying the measurement, analysis and reporting phases of the compliance effectiveness methodology.

    Literature review: measuring compliance effectiveness (NAT 71078) (PDF, 1MB)

    This literature review draws on the work of a number of international organisations, Australian Public Service agencies and academic research to explain the concepts underlying compliance effectiveness evaluation.

    Developing effective compliance strategies (NAT 72788) (PDF, 807KB)

    This product is designed to assist compliance staff to analyse compliance behaviour, and the various factors which can drive this behaviour, as they design and implement compliance strategies.

    The ATO publishes effectiveness stories on our website to demonstrate to the community how our activities positively affect willing and sustainable participation in the tax and superannuation systems.
