    On this page

    The Large Business 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, superannuation and registry systems.

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

    The group will focus on:

    • identifying opportunities to improve the taxation and superannuation system to make it easy to get things right and hard not to, through an understanding of the effects on the large business sector
    • gaining insights into issues faced by the large business sector to improve future approaches and processes
    • providing opportunities to discuss the strategic direction of the tax system, specifically, opportunities for improvements to its administration and supporting key relationships that reflect the broader community
    • providing an effective and dynamic approach to community consultation and engagement in relation to the design and administration of the tax system by the ATO.


    The secretariat of the Large Business Stewardship Group can be contacted by email at
