Efforts by the ATO and its partner agencies to tackle tax crime continue to pay off with successful prosecutions that deter criminal behaviour and enable us to collect tax that is properly owed to the Australian community.
The collaborative approach will continue under the new Serious Financial Crime Taskforce, which began operating on 1 July 2015. This cross-agency taskforce will build on the success of Project Wickenby, which has led to over $2.2 billion in tax liabilities being raised, as well as increased tax collections from improved compliance behaviour following high profile investigations, prosecutions and sentencings.
