One of the accepted risks of running a business is being audited by the tax department. Nowadays, there are multiple government agencies that you and your business  may need to deal with, apart from just the Australian Tax Office and possible income tax audits. With increased data sharing between government organisations, it has become much more common to have audit activity triggered for things like payroll tax issues or not paying superannuation to employees.

To help us understand what is happening with audits, and how you can best prepare for them, we are joined by Rod Spicer from Accountancy Insurance. We’ll also learn about their Audit Shield service, a useful safeguard against the financial implications of an ATO audit.
