    When it comes to identity crime, do you know what to look out for?

    Identity documents are like gold to tax scammers. They can use things like your driver’s licence, passport and tax file number to:

    • steal your tax refunds and super
    • commit refund fraud in your name
    • take over your business and submit amendments to your BAS.

    Stay one step ahead by treating all requests for information with caution.

    You should also review your business’s security practices. Make sure you:

    • have lockable storage units and an appropriate alarm system in place
    • change all passwords on a regular basis
    • install up-to-date security and anti-virus software on all devices
    • secure business files and employee information when not in use
    • log out of systems and lock computers when not in use.
