The ATO Supporting Your Wellbeing

At the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), we understand that small business owners have a lot on their plate. With everyday pressures, unexpected life circumstances, and blurring boundaries between work and family, your wellbeing may be affected.

There is a range of support available for small businesses, including tools and services to help you stay on track, or get back on track if you are behind or having trouble with your tax and super obligations.

Even with the right tools in place, sometimes running a business is stressful, and you need some further assistance. Contact us, or speak to your tax advisor as early as possible so we can work with you to find a solution based on your circumstances.

We can provide you with the following support:

Andrew Watson is an Assistant Commissioner in the Small Business line, and is currently responsible for understanding how small businesses engage with the tax and super systems, collaborating with small businesses, industry groups and government agencies to shape the client experience and drive improved digital services, helping small businesses manage cash-flow so sustainable and viable businesses can thrive, and advocating for small businesses within the ATO.
