The ATO’s Next 5000 program is well underway and many medium sized private groups (and their advisors) may be surprised at the extent of these reviews. ATO teams are using data analysis tools and other information to identify private groups who (with associates) are considered to control more than $50m. The concepts of ‘justified trust’ and ‘streamlined assurance’, previously deployed to the large corporate and international sector and Top 500 private groups, are now being applied to the Next 5000.

Advisors can help their clients to prepare for a Next 5000 Review by:

  • Understanding the ATO’s expectations of tax governance, and bringing this back to a practical / commercial approach for each client
  • Anticipating the types of initial questions and likely areas of review or risk areas
  • Ensuring any complex technical positions are documented in advance
  • Applying increased diligence to the already extensive tax return disclosures, to avoid embarrassing errors.
