About us

The Software developers website has been designed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) specifically for digital service providers who produce taxation and superannuation related software, for example payroll/HR, electronic lodgment service (ELS), superannuation, investment and business accounting.

The purpose of the site is to provide timely information to aid the development of taxation and superannuation related software including electronic reporting specifications, guides and instructions, tax return stationery and statement of formulas/tax tables. It also contains news and updates and a list of commonly used acronyms.

PLEASE NOTE: This site is not intended for taxpayers who have difficulties with their tax lodgments, submissions or payments. Refer to ato.gov.au for the relevant contact details for your enquiry.
