ATO’s Status of the Worker Subcommittee
Michael Dirkis FTIA participated in a meeting of the Status of the worker Subcommittee of the ATO’s Building and Construction Industry Forum on Wednesday 1 October 2008. The Assistant Registrar of the Australian Business Register provided an update on activities around the register including removing from the register ABNs where there is no entitlement to an ABN and promoting greater use of the ABN by regulatory agencies. Other discussion focused upon the inappropriate use by apprentices of ABNs and other contractor or employee issues, including the usefulness of employee/contractor decision tool.
