Supporting Indigenous small business

The ATO is committed to supporting small businesses run by Indigenous Australians.

They have dedicated staff on the Indigenous Helpline who specialise in helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people understand their tax and superannuation obligations in their small business.

The Helpline number is 13 10 30 (8.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday, except public holidays).

If you are starting a small business, your tax adviser will be able to assist you with working out the best structure for your business, understanding your tax and superannuation obligations and meeting those obligations on time.

These links are all to the ATO website and are a good place to look for the information you need.
