Additional penalties include failing to:

  • Keep or retain required records
  • Retain or produce required declarations
  • Provide access and reasonable facilities to an authorised tax officer
  • Apply for or cancel GST registration when required
  • Issue a required tax invoice or adjustment note
  • Register as a PAYG withholder when required
  • Lodge a required activity statement electronically

If a taxpayer is audited and an amended assessment is raised, further penalties of up to 75% of the additional tax levied may be applied, depending on the severity of the offence. Examples include making a false or misleading statement, not taking reasonable care, or taking a position that is not reasonably arguable in a tax return or other document.
