    Data matching

    More than 640 million transactions are reported to us annually from sources such as banks, share registries, employers, merchants, states and territories and other government departments.

    We use this to pre-fill returns and detect people trying to avoid their tax and superannuation obligations.

    In the last financial year, we used our data and information matching to raise $947 million in revenue adjustments from some 445,000 reviews and audits.
