The ATO says it understands that many businesses use electronic channels to manage their day to day interactions and record keeping.
From 1 July 2014 the ATO advises that it will no longer send paper activity statements out for the majority of taxpayers whose activity statements are lodged electronically. The ATO will continue to send paper activity statements for form types Q, R, S & T because these cannot currently be sent electronically.
Transitioning activity statements to be fully electronic is one of the steps the ATO is taking to keep pace with community expectations.
