    Dear Ministers

    As the Accountable Authority for the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) and the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB), I present you with the annual reports for the year ended 30 June 2018 for presentation to Parliament, in compliance with section 46 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

    The reports follow the guidelines approved by the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit, as well as other legislative reporting requirements as listed in:

    • sections 17AA to 17AJ of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014
    • subsection 60-130(1) of the Tax Agent Services Act 2009 (for the TPB)
    • Division 130 of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Act 2012 (for the ACNC).

    Due to their operational independence and statutory obligations, the TPB and the ACNC have produced their own annual reports.

    As required by section 10 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Rule 2014, I certify that we have:

    • prepared fraud risk assessments and fraud control plans
    • appropriate fraud prevention, detection, investigation and reporting mechanisms that meet the specific needs of the ATO
    • taken all reasonable measures to appropriately deal with fraud.

    Yours sincerely,

     

     Signature of Jacqui Curtis FAHRI, Acting Commissioner of Taxation and Registrar of the Australian Business Register
