Making a voluntary disclosure

We encourage taxpayers who have made a mistake in relation to their tax affairs to make a voluntary disclosure. This can lead to reductions in shortfall penalties and interest, particularly if the voluntary disclosure is made before the notification of an audit.

Voluntary disclosures can be made in writing, electronically, by phone, or other methods available in specific circumstances.
