From this week the ATO will be sending letters to small businesses that have fallen behind with their
tax payments. The letters have a new look, which will make it easier for people to understand what
they need to do and where they are in the debt collection process.
So what should you do if you’re trying to manage a tax debt?
1. Contact the ATO as early as possible on 13 11 42 – they want to help you get back on track.
2. Use the ATO online calculator to work out a payment plan that suits your circumstances
3. Call their 24 hour, automated self-help phone line to set up a payment arrangement. Phone:
