The Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit is holding its second public hearing tomorrow for the Committee’s inquiry based on Audit Report No. 48 (2017-18), Managing Compliance with Foreign Investment Obligations for Residential Real Estate.
The Committee will hear from the Australian Taxation Office, the Department of the Treasury, and the Australian National Audit Office.
Committee Chair, Senator Dean Smith, said the public hearing will assess the effectiveness of the ATO’s and Treasury’s management of compliance with foreign investment obligations for residential real estate.
“The Committee will consider how foreign investment compliance arrangements by the ATO and Treasury were monitored and reported, and activities undertaken to address potential non-compliance.”
