  • Program objectives

    The objectives of this data-matching program are to:

    • promote voluntary compliance by communicating how we use external data with our own, to help encourage taxpayers to comply with their tax and superannuation obligations
    • identify and educate those individuals and businesses that may be failing to meet their registration and/or lodgment obligations, and assist them to comply
    • gain insights from the data that may help to develop and implement treatment strategies to improve voluntary compliance; this may include educational or compliance activities as appropriate
    • gain insights from the data to increase the ATO’s understanding of the behaviours and compliance profiles of individuals and businesses that have bought, sold or accepted payment via cryptocurrency
    • help ensure that individuals and businesses that trade or accept cryptocurrency as payment are fulfilling their taxation lodgment, reporting and payment obligations
    • help ensure that individuals and businesses are fulfilling their tax and superannuation reporting obligations.
