Australian Taxation Office
Type of Organisation
Australian Government department
The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is the principal revenue collection agency of the Australian Government. Our role is to effectively manage and shape the tax and superannuation systems that support and fund services for Australians, including collecting revenue, administering the goods and services tax (GST) on behalf of the Australian states and territories, administering a range of programs that provide transfers and benefits to the community, administering major aspects of Australia’s superannuation system, and being custodian of the Australian Business Register.
Our purpose is to contribute to the economic and social wellbeing of Australians by fostering willing participation in our tax and superannuation systems. We aim to be a leading tax and superannuation administration, known for our contemporary service, expertise and integrity. We work to achieve taxpayer confidence in the Australian tax and superannuation systems by helping people understand their rights and obligations, improving ease of compliance and access to benefits, and managing non-compliance with the law.
