    Data matching

    We monitor activity in disaster-affected areas to ensure the community is not being taken advantage of by businesses undertaking repair and reconstruction work.

    We also work closely with other government agencies and insurance companies to ensure payments made to people undertaking repair and reconstruction work are reported correctly.

    Our data matching capability allows us to:

    • ensure businesses report all of their income and claim offsets they are entitled to
    • identify businesses who have received government payments to check they have reported all their income and met their PAYG withholding and super obligations
    • detect overstated or fraudulent claims.
