Recommendation 3.2

To assist taxpayers and tax agents in identifying the correct ATO business industry codes, the ATO should take the necessary steps (and where necessary, work with the ABS) to provide public access to the ABS developed 5-digit Coder.

ATO response

We agreed with this recommendation and implementation was completed 28 August 2014.

After consultation with Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to provide the 5 digit Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) publicly, we developed and published the Business industry code tool and accompanying user guidance material on our website.
