ATO Targets - Frost Crane & Co [cached]

And for the rich, the ATO's second commissioner, Bruce Quigley, says the ATO is building a profile of the lifestyles of the rich, to see if it matches what they declare in their income tax returns.
The ATO will conduct about 380 reviews of people worth more than $30 million for the 2011-12 financial year, resulting in 60 full tax audits for the "highly wealthy". At the other end of the spectrum, the ATO's data-matching technology will target dole cheats by cross-checking on a daily basis people with outstanding debts. Mr Quigley told BusinessDay that these sophisticated systems have the power to automatically cross-check millions of pieces of data to identify omissions or errors in what you've reported. Mr Quigley said the ATO had identified cafes as a key area for possible evasion of taxes. For those under suspicion, the search can be forensic: "We look at till tapes, employee records, third-party data, credit transactions and eftpos transactions," he said. The ATO will also pay particular attention to deductions for work-related expenses this year. "We are concerned the difficult times may tempt more people to inflate their claims," he said.

Tax office to crackdown on "cash in hand" black economy | Wealth Depot - Financial Advisors [cached]

The ATO's Second Commissioner Bruce Quigley said one of the biggest problem areas they will be targeting is the traditional Australian way to pay cash in hand which has resulted in some small businesses hiding their income.
"It certainly is something that we have seen," he said. Mr Quigley also said a high amount of claims increased in the construction industry and was the reason they have become the latest group to come under the microscope. "Higher claims seem to be emerging in the building, construction and labourers, construction supervisors and project managers as well as sales and marketing managers," he said. Mr Quigley also said some industries were at a higher risk o f not complying with superannuation guarantee obligations, including cafes and restaurants, carpentry services and real estate services. He said they will be audited. "These are industries that deal a lot in cash, especially when you talk about cafes and restaurants and it's based on the trends we've seen," Mr Quigley said.
