Yesterday on facebook and new group launched called “The Small Business ATO Forum” – The page is a platform for small businesses to raise their concerns and questions to the ATO.
Though the page is unofficial [not endorsed by the ATO] the organisers are hoping to engage them through various discussions started and particpated in by small businesses around Australia. According to recent discussions on the page there are currently 1 927 590 small businesses registered for GST in Australia and these contribute to over 60% of the national economy.
Those are big numbers! – What would happen if they all shut up shop?
Check out the Page and contribute to the discussions http://www.facebook.com/#!/SmallBusinessATOForum?sk=wall
