Can you insure against ATO investigations?

The Tax Commissioner has predicted that almost 30% of SME businesses will be subject to the ATO's compliance program, including some form of tax audit.

The processes can be lengthy to prepare, and response times to audit findings can also be time consuming. In addition, the costs can run to thousands of dollars.

In response, Vero has designed Tax Probe Plus Insurance, which offers cover for professional fees associated with audits and other official investigations such as:

  • ATO Income Tax Audit, Fringe Benefits Tax Audit and Capital Gains Tax Audits,
  • WorkCover Authority Audit of WorkCover returns, and
  • Payroll Tax Audits

There are four cover options to choose from:

  • Business Audit Only (with investigation cover); or
  • Business AND Directors Audit (with investigation cover); or
  • Individual cover (only for insureds that are not a corporation); or
  • Self Managed Superannuation Fund cover
