    Speaker: Brendan Giles, Principal - Worrells

    About the webinar:    It’s been well publicised over the last 18 months that the ATO is ramping up its debt collection programs, looking to collect the over $52B in debt that has accrued on its books since the start of the Pandemic in 2020. A key focus for this debt collection program is small and medium businesses, who collectively owe more than $35B

    Our guest speaker will take a look at:

    • The ATO’s changing approach to debt collection over the last 18 months.
    • What we’ve seen and heard about the ATO’s current policies from our network.
    • Assistance available to small businesses through the ATO website.
    • Insolvency and Restructuring options compared to ATO payment plans
    • How the ATO is responding to payment plans and requests for remission.
    • How the ATO responds to SBR, VA/DOCAs, and Part X proposals (with some recent case studies).
    • Where we see ATO debt collection going in 2024.
    • Strategies for the small and medium businesses to stay in the ATO’s good books.
