  • New small business benchmarks are available on the ATO app

    We have updated our small business benchmarks with the latest data from the 2016–17 financial year.

    The easiest way to calculate your clients’ benchmarks is to use the Business performance check tool in the ATO app. Just enter your clients' figures into the tool and it will do the calculations for you.

    The benchmarks are a handy tool to see if your clients need extra help or advice on managing their business.

    If your clients are outside the average benchmark range, we recommend you:

    • check that the records provided to you are complete and accurate
    • ensure their business industry code (BIC) still represents their main type of work.

    In addition to helping businesses see if they are performing within their industry average, the benchmarks are one of the tools we use to identify businesses that may be a higher risk.

    If your client’s industry isn’t represented in our benchmarks, you can use the information in the Taxation statistics.
