  • Private Groups Stewardship Group

    The Private Groups Stewardship Group is one of the nine stewardship groups that comprise the ATO’s consultation framework.

    The Private Groups Stewardship Group:

    • consults on high-level, significant matters in relation to privately owned and wealthy groups, where the outcomes are considered to be in the national interest
    • provides opportunities to discuss the strategic direction of the tax and super systems – specifically, opportunities for improvements to its administration – and supports key relationships that reflect the broader community
    • membership comprises representatives from the ATO, key industry and representative bodies, tax professionals and privately owned groups
    • is co-chaired by the ATO and a rotational stewardship member.

    The Private Groups Stewardship Group works with us to improve the client experience for privately owned and wealthy groups, providing an effective and dynamic approach to community consultation and engagement as it relates to the design and administration of the tax and super systems by the ATO.

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