Let’s Talk about taking on employees

Let’s Talk about taking on employees

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) invites all small-business owners to join our online consultation forum: Let’s Talk.

We are keen to hear about your experiences with taking on employees – as well as ideas for improvements.

It’s quick and easy to register and open to all. Not only can you share your own experiences but you can learn from what others are saying about taking on employees.

The conversation closes on Wednesday, 8 April 2015.

Why are we having this conversation?

The ATO wants to improve the interactions that small-business owners have with government agencies. This is why we’re leading a cross-agency initiative called Small Business Fix-it Squads.

These squads are unique because small-business owners and the different government agencies can work together. Squads can look at issues from your perspective – with a focus on identifying and reducing red tape.

Red tape includes processes that take up your valuable time. This could be a complex or repetitive process, or the time taken to find government information – and understand it.

It’s all about improving things and making it easier for you.
