  • Corporate tax transparency data

    We publish the tax details of large public and private companies every year in the Report of entity tax information.

    We write to the companies each September so they can check and, if needed, correct their information before we publish.

    If you run or represent a large public or private company, you will receive a letter from us soon. If you don't receive a letter, you should contact us.

    The letter will list the details we plan to publish to data.gov.au.

    We are legally required to publish information about corporate tax entities, that are:

    • an Australian public or foreign owned entity with a total income of $100 million or more
    • an Australian resident private company with a total income of $200 million or more
    • an entity reporting petroleum resource rent tax (PRRT) payable.

    The information comes from their tax returns and includes the company's:

    • name
    • Australian business number (ABN)
    • total income
    • taxable income
    • total tax payable
    • PRRT amount payable (if applicable)

    We will also publish details of 2017-18 and 2018-19 income tax returns if they were lodged or processed after 1 September 2020 and not published previously.

    Published details could be taken from an entity’s original tax return or an entity-initiated amended assessment. We do not publish the details of Commissioner-initiated amendments.

    If your company or the company you represent meets the threshold for inclusion in the report, and haven't received a letter from us by 4 October 2021, email ReportingEntityInfo@ato.gov.au.

    You can also send general questions about the annual Report of entity tax information to this mailbox.
