  • Data matching

    Data matching is a powerful administrative and law enforcement tool. Information from a variety of third-party sources is compiled electronically, validated, analysed and used for a range of education and compliance activities.

    Data matching allows us to:

    • pre-fill tax returns, making it easier for everyone to lodge their tax
    • reassure the community that we protect honest people and businesses from unfair competition
    • ensure people and businesses
      • lodge tax returns and activity statements when required to do so
      • correctly declare their income and claim offsets and other benefits
      • comply with their obligations.

    It allows us to detect people and businesses operating outside the tax system, detect fraud against the Commonwealth, and recover debt.
