Small Business Tax Tribunal

The Small Business Tax Tribunal (SBTT) is a hugely important step forward for self-employed small business people in their dealings with the Australian Taxation Office. The Tribunal brings a measure of fairness and justice to dealing with the ATO in a genuine low-cost situation.

Key features of the Small Business Tax Tribunal

1. Tax concierge service through the Small Business Ombudsman.

2. 10 tax clinics through Universities to assist small business people.

3. A dedicated Small Business Tax Tribunal  operating within the Administrative Appeals Tribunal. The SBTT will:
  • Be totally separate from ATO.
  • Generally NOT involve lawyers.
  • Appoint a case manager to support the taxpayer.
  • Make decisions within 28 days of a hearing.
  • Require a payment of $500 from the taxpayer for each appeal.
Importantly:
  • ABN cancellations will be appealable to the SBTT.
  • If the ATO uses external lawyers, the ATO must pay for the self-employed person to have ‘equivalent legal representation’.
