Primarius Blog - Audit insurance update FY22

Muriel Oliver
News | 20 Jun 2022

We offer tax audit insurance to all our clients every year. This means our clients are covered for any Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or Office of State Revenue (OSR) audits or investigations. In our experience responding to audits can be very time-consuming and therefore costly, not to mention stressful and tiring.  We advocate taking out tax audit insurance to cover the cost of this risk.  As you can see from the graph that they kindly supplied to us detailing July - December 2021 audit insurance claims.  This shows the main current audit targets are Employer obligations, BAS, Income Tax, Covid-19-ATO JobKeeper Payment Audits, and Payroll Tax (all states).

Last year the audit activity was as follows - FY21 audit insurance update
