The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) continues to increase their surveillance activity and utilize the electronic data bases of on-line sellers.
Data will be acquired relating to registrants who sold goods and services to an annual value of $12,000 or more during the 2015–2016, 2016–2017 and 2017–2018 financial years.
Data will be sought from eBay for these three years and on an ongoing basis. The data will be used to identify those apparently operating a business but failing to meet their registration and/or lodgment obligations. It is estimated that between 20,000 and 30,000 records will be obtained. Uber and Airbnb records are also provided.
