Over his career he has worked in a variety of roles and groups including roles in Service Delivery, Enterprise Solutions & Technology, Law Design and Practice and the Client Engagement Group.
The Risk & Strategy Individuals stream leads the ATO in understanding the Individuals tax system, risks, client behaviour and drivers of a client’s risk appetite. Using this knowledge combined with data and technology, we design an integrated risk treatment strategy that builds trust and confidence in the community. We have a strong focus on delivering an improved end-to-end client experience employing protective, preventative and corrective strategies to detect and deal with risks. Our ultimate goal is to increase future voluntary compliance and sustainably reduce the Individuals (not-in-business) tax gap.
