    New legislation

    When the Government announces new tax measures and introduces new tax legislation, the ATO provides practical guidance for taxpayers faced with the question of whether to follow the existing law or attempt to anticipate the proposed change.

    We also provide advice about our administrative approach to specific proposed law changes.

    ATO advice covers the options available to taxpayers and the consequences of choosing particular options. It also covers what action, if any, we'll take during the period up until the final outcome of a proposed law change is known.
