Ebay Online Sales Data Matching Program

The ATO has announced that it will acquire online selling data relating to between 15,000 and 25,000 individuals who sold goods and services of $10,000 or more on eBay between 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015.

Data will be sought from eBay Australia and New Zealand Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of eBay International AG which owns and operates www.ebay.com.au.

The data requested will include information that enables the ATO to match online selling accounts to a taxpayer, including name, address and contact information, as well as information on the number and value of transactions processed for each online selling account.

These records will be electronically matched with certain sections of ATO data holdings to identify non-compliance with registration, lodgement, reporting and payment obligations under taxation laws.

Should you have any queries in regards to the above article, please do not hesitate to contact our office on
02 4958 1829 or email our Client Support Manager on email@davidobrien.com.au
