We are involved in paying some discretionary grants, such as academic prizes and funding for mentoring or sponsorship that encourages community participation in the tax system. All of the ATO’s grant activities meet the requirements and principles of grants administration contained in the Commonwealth grants rules and guidelines, including reporting and publishing of all funding provided throughout the year. We have rated the financial risk for each grant activity as low.

Information on grants we awarded during the period 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016 is available on our website at
