Access, accountability and reporting

We are the government's principal revenue collection agency, managing and shaping Australia's tax, excise and superannuation systems. Our actions are scrutinised by independent bodies. We consult widely and report both what we do and our results to parliament and the community.

As the government's principal revenue collection agency and a key part of the Treasury portfolio, we manage and shape the tax, excise and superannuation systems that fund services for Australians. We report our outcomes to parliament and we inform the community about how we achieve these outcomes.

We regularly consult with taxpayers as well as business and professional associations, all of whom offer valuable feedback about how we operate and ways we can improve.

We provide ready access to information to:

  • enhance transparency
  • demonstrate our accountability and efficiency
  • develop trust and respect.
