The ATO uses Annual Compliance Arrangements (ACA) as the centrepiece of their efforts to build enhanced positive relationships and compliance outcomes with large business. In 2012, Alcoa signed up to an ACA covering Income Tax, FBT, GST and Excise. They were the first company to sign up for all four taxes. Richard shares his journey to date together with the outcomes so far.
