  • Corporate tax transparency data

    In September we are writing to certain corporate tax entities to advise them that our 2018–19 Report of entity tax information is being prepared for publication.

    We will let you know the details being published and give you and your clients time to respond and advise if the information is not correct.

    Each year we are required by legislation to publish certain tax information of corporate tax entities, if the entity is:

    • 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 published report will include:

    • the company name
    • Australian business number (ABN)
    • total income
    • taxable income
    • total tax payable (based on tax returns)
    • any PRRT amount payable for the 2018–19 income year
    • entities details for 2016–17 or 2017–18 tax returns if they were lodged or processed after 1 September 2019 and the information has not been published previously.

    These details will be taken directly from tax returns and, in accordance with the law, won’t include any Commissioner-initiated amendments. The final data set will be extracted in early September.

    If you or your client are an entity who should be included in the report and haven’t received a letter from us by 6 October 2020, email ReportingEntityInfo@ato.gov.au to confirm and request a copy. You can also use this mailbox for general questions about the 2018–19 Report of entity tax information.
