  • Alcohol Stakeholder Group

    The Alcohol Stakeholder Group (ASG) is a consultative forum for representatives of the alcohol industry, ATO and the Department of Home Affairs to discuss the management and administration of the tax system, with a particular focus on excise duties, equivalent customs duties and wine equalisation tax. The group is chaired by Assistant Commissioner Rajitha Srikhanta.

    The ATO consultation protocol underpins our consultation framework arrangements.
