The Balance Between Efficiency and Effectiveness: Managing ATO Document Communication

For accountants, managing ATO documentation can be a tedious and time-consuming task.

However, it’s important to ensure your clients are informed and compliant with the ATO’s requirements. Let’s explore the differences between managing ATO documents efficiently versus effectively, and how you can achieve both.


Efficiently managing ATO Documents

Efficiency in managing ATO documents may seem like the right approach, but it can lead to ineffective communication with your clients.

Some practices may have chosen to have some or all  ATO documents sent directly to their clients for them to handle, without reviewing or managing them internally. While this approach may save time for the practice, it often results in clients not understanding the correspondence and can lead to confusion and mistakes.

This method is not effective as it doesn’t provide the necessary support and guidance for your clients.


Effectively managing ATO Documents

On the other hand, accountants managing ATO documents internally for clients is an effective method but it can be time-consuming.

Practices that chose this approach are better informed about the ATO’s requirements for their clients and can provide their clients with the necessary information to comply. However, it does take a significant amount of time to manually capture, review and communicate the ATO documentation.

This method may not be time efficient for your practice.
