About the financial statements
The ATO’s financial statements are general purpose financial statements and are required by section 42 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act). The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with:
- the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability (Financial Reporting) Rule 2015
- Australian Accounting Standards and Interpretations – Reduced Disclosure Requirements issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) that apply for the reporting period.
The ATO’s financial statements have been prepared on an accrual basis and in accordance with the historical cost convention, except for certain assets and liabilities at fair value. Except where stated, no allowance is made for the effect of changing prices on the results or the financial position.
These financial statements incorporate the financial transactions of the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB), the Australian Business Register (ABR), and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
