  • How the framework was developed

    The lodgment program framework was developed in consultation with tax professionals and tax professional associations through 2011 and 2012 and introduced in 2013.

    The framework means that to access program benefits, you will need to lodge your clients' returns electronically, and lodge 85% or more of your clients’ current year returns on time. The benchmark of 85% was developed in consultation with professional association representatives. This was considered a reasonable benchmark for registered agents to meet.

    Lodgment Program Review Working Group

    The Lodgment program review working group is a special purpose working group made up of representatives of professional associations, practitioners and the ATO. The group focuses on identifying key issues, irritants, gaps and opportunities to improve the administration of the lodgment program and the overall tax practitioner and client experience.
