ATO Audits - Q&A with Natasha Lie by Marion Burchell

CEOs, business owners and GMs be prepared in case the ATO decides to target your organisation for an audit.

In this BWA Podcast Show, strategic leader Marion Burchell interviews LG Accounting Solutions Partner, Natasha Lie, to cover all the questions and more…

FACT: 32% of audits for the 2020-21 financial year were for BAS and employer obligations.
