Senator Ludwig asked the Minister for Revenue and Assistant Treasurer, upon notice, on 1 April 2004:

For each of the past 10 financial years, how many private binding rulings did the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) issue in relation to (a) income tax; and (b) indirect tax.

Senator Minchin (Minister for Finance and Administration) —As these questions deal with matters that are the responsibility of the Australian Taxation Office, I have asked the Commissioner for advice.

I am advised that a breakdown of the number of private rulings in the categories referred to in the question is not publicly available.

Further, prior to 1 April 2001, this information was stored on a number of different systems and data may be incomplete.
