• Your dealings with the ATO

    ‘Your dealings with the ATO’ is a feature that helps you check the status of all the enquiries you have sent in to the ATO.

    You will be able to see a list of all your enquiries (dealings) relating to your business, including:

    • portal
    • mail
    • telephone, and
    • fax.

    You will need to refer to your records to view the details of the enquiry.

    A list of all your enquiries will be displayed.

    You will be able to navigate through the list by selecting the Previous 50 and Next 50 control buttons.

    You can use a portal receipt number to check the status of a specific enquiry you have made relating to your business.

    Portal enquiries (dealings) will include:

    • messages
    • online forms
    • refund requests, and
    • transfer requests.

    The display will only include the enquiries you are authorised to view.

    The status of each of your enquiries may be:

    • received
    • further information requested
    • in progress, or
    • completed.

    Completed dealings will be displayed for three months after the completion date.

    The estimated date to completion is based on the taxpayers’ charter standards.
