  • GST Stewardship Group

    The GST Stewardship Group is one of the Stewardship groups operated by the ATO as a means of improving the client experience and administration of Australia’s taxation and superannuation system.

    The group provides an opportunity for strategic discussion to develop and improve the administration and operation of the taxation and superannuation system into the future.

    The group will focus on:

    • identifying opportunities to improve the taxation and superannuation system, specifically the operation and administration of the GST system, to make it easy to get things right and hard not to
    • gaining insights into issues faced by taxpayers operating in the GST system to improve future approaches and processes
    • communicating key ATO messages to the broader GST community.

    The ATO consultation protocol underpins our consultation framework arrangements.
