  • Supporting the Tax Profession Working Group

    The Supporting the Tax Profession Working Group will work to develop a support strategy for tax professionals that can be implemented collaboratively by the ATO and tax professional associations in the event of a disaster or a crisis event.

    The four key areas that the group will focus on are:

    • information and guidance
    • flexible and adaptable processes
    • changing roles and mental health support
    • understanding long term impacts.

    The ATO consultation protocol underpins the ATO’s consultation framework arrangements.
