ATO Warning – Emails, Mobile Phones & Phone SCAMS
We highly recommend you do not answer any of the questions asked, as this call will more than likely be a scam. The ATO will not contact you via this method and seeing we are your nominated tax agent all enquiries would come to us from the ATO. In an unusual case if the ATO was to contact you directly they would send a letter to your address and then follow up with a phone call or ask you to call them quoting a particular reference.
The ATO does not contact clients via email or texting.
So if you were to receive contact from a person saying they are from the ATO, we would ask you to contact us immediately on 03 9670 5232 or the ATO on 13 28 61

Divison 293 Tax – Super Funds
Division 293 tax is being introduced from the 2012–13 year to reduce the tax concession on superannuation contributions for individuals with income greater than $300,000 a year.
Division 293 tax will be charged at 15% of an individual’s taxable concessional contributions above the $300,000 threshold (which are capped for 2012–13 at $25,000). For individuals who are members of a defined benefit fund, Division 293 tax may be calculated on notional contributions, which are not capped.
For more information, contact our office or visit the ATO website.
