Applying For a Government Contract

Businesses and their first-tier subcontractors tendering for Commonwealth Government contracts over $4 million (including GST) must supply a statement of tax record (STR) provided by the ATO. If you received one last year, you may need to apply for a new one.

The STR must show satisfactory engagement with the tax system, so it’s important to keep your tax obligations up to date, including registration, lodgement and payment.

Apply early to allow time for processing before the tender closing date. The ATO generally takes 4 business days to process applications.

avance can apply on your behalf if we are your registered tax agent.

An STR is valid for 6 or 12 months depending on if you have an Australian tax record of less or more than 4 years.
