Recommendation 4.1

To improve the transparency of ATO penalty decisions, the ATO should:

  1. improve its internal reporting to determine the numbers of cases, and their quantum, in which reasonably arguable position and/or reasonable care penalties were applied and remitted; and
  2. publish these figures.

ATO response

We agreed in principle with this recommendation and it is currently in progress.
