ATO draft guidance on car parking fringe benefits

Chartered Accountants ANZ, together with CPA Australia and Corporate Tax Association, lodged a joint submission on the ATO draft guidance on car parking fringe benefits, namely TR 2019/D5 and the FBT Guide for Employers Chapter 16. As a result of the joint submission, the ATO is collaborating with the bodies to reach an agreeable position.

AUSkey transition to myGovID / Relationship Authorisation Manager (RAM)

The ATO held a meeting of the Tax Practitioners Stewardship Group on 6 February 2020 to discuss the AUSkey transition to myGovID / RAM. Based on our discussions with the ATO, most of the issues are already known to the ATO and some “fixes” are in the works. To assist the ATO in resolving the issues experienced by practitioners, CA ANZ has requested and submitted feedback received from members on their experience with transitioning from AUSkey to myGovID to the ATO.
