Conversations around regional Australia, to make managing tax easier for small businesses.
The ATO will talk with the business community about changes the ATO is making to improve their experience and listen to feedback from businesses.
"These changes are designed to make business interactions with the ATO simpler, more efficient and less costly," Ms Southward said.
The ATO last year promised to build trust and confidence among the broader community and these community conversations will help the ATO deliver on that commitment.
The session will provide Sunshine Coast business owners with the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of changes the ATO is making.
"We have already changed how we do some things based on what business and tax professionals told us. The Community Conversations provide another opportunity for the ATO leadership to talk directly with business owners to find out what else they think the ATO needs to improve," Ms Southward said.
The evening will give attendees an opportunity to ask tax officials questions about dealing with the ATO and make suggestions on how this could be improved.
Ms Southward said information desks will allow attendees to speak one-on-one with an ATO representative.
A short session will outline ATO initiatives to improve business owners' experience dealing with the ATO, followed by small group sessions where businesses can have genuine conversations with ATO representatives.
"We want to listen to businesses and hear their ideas on how the ATO can improve," Ms Southward said.
