In July 2013, the Australian Tax Office (ATO) published a new version of its annual report setting out what it is doing to manage the risks to and maintain the integrity of Australia's taxation and superannuation systems over the following 12 months. Compliance in focus 2013/14 aims to provide further explanation of the ATO's key activities and focus areas.

This article also looks at how to be ready for an ATO audit before it commences, the opportunities that exist to respond to ATO facts and position papers, and how taxpayers are increasingly resorting to alternative dispute resolution processes with the ATO.
