  • Gifts, hospitality or other benefits register

    The ATO gifts, hospitality or other benefits policy encourages all ATO executives and staff to politely decline offers of gifts, hospitality, or other benefits.

    Gifts, hospitality or other benefits may compromise staff integrity.

    The Australian Public Service Commission (APSC)External Link requires all agency leaders to publicly disclose all gifts or benefits accepted and valued at or over A$100 (excluding GST).

    You can also see our Gifts, hospitality or other benefits register for prior years.
