There is upsetting news for business owners who have an ATO debt as of 1st July 2017. Small businesses will need to be careful of ATO Bankruptcy since the ATO may publish details of your tax debts to credit reporting agencies such as Veda Advantage and Dun & Bradstreet. This will make it much more challenging for small businesses to attain credit, possibly paralysing them. How could this have a bearing on you? You may be affected if you fit into one of the following 3 categories:
Just so you’re aware, the ATO must first notify you before they impart your debt information to any credit agency.
If your ATO debts seem to be getting out of hand and you don’t want your credit rating harmed then you have at least one workable option: Get into a payment arrangement with the ATO. This may protect you from ATO Bankruptcy.
Alternatively, if you sense there is simply no hope or the ATO is threatening legal action against you as a result of your unsettled ATO debts, then bankruptcy may be a viable option for you.
