  • How to make a voluntary disclosure

    Voluntary disclosures must be made in the approved form. For further details refer to Voluntary disclosures – approved form.

    How to submit a voluntary disclosure

    How you submit a voluntary disclosure depends on its nature and timing. If you haven't been notified of a review or examination, submit it as indicated in the following table.

    If you're making a voluntary disclosure after you've been notified of a review or examination:

    • for GST, wine equalisation tax (WET) and fuel schemes, including fuel tax credits – submit it by post, or hand it to your client relationship manager (if applicable)
    • for other taxes and superannuation – provide the information over the phone (if your circumstances permit) or give it to the tax officer conducting the review or examination.
