The view from the Australian Taxation Office Building on Elizabeth Street, Brisbane is pretty spectacular

Innovation and the ATO aren’t things most people would immediately think go in the same sentence. I was pleasantly surprised that they too when I had an opportunity this week to attend the ATO’s Digital Showcase event held in Brisbane. One of the presenter’s explained how the ATO was so focused in the past on those few non-complying tax payers, that they hadn’t found ways to properly support the vast majority of small business owners who want to do the ‘right thing’.

The Digital Showcase gave all of us an opportunity to see how digital technology can work for small business owners, streamlining operations and providing much needed resources. I captured some of the initiatives using Storify, and if you have an opportunity to attend a ATO Digital Showcase event I highly recommend it.

If you can’t get an event, I have Storified the ATO’s Digital Showcase for you.
