Tax agent suspended after $100k tax shortfall

ATO building

A company’s tax agent registration has been suspended for 12 months by the Tax Practitioners Board after an audit revealed a shortfall in client tax payments of more than $100,000.

According to the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB), an ATO audit into lodgements made by the unidentified firm revealed that adjustments were needed for 15 clients, with a combined tax shortfall of $101,653.

It was also found that the company had disclosed information relating to its clients’ affairs without their permission or a legal duty to do so.

As well as demanding the tax shortfalls be repaid (an average adjustment to assessable income of $17,669 for each client), the tax office also added penalties of $20,576.

In addition to the registration suspension, the TPB has ordered the company and its sole director to bring all of the lodgements up to date.
