Want to do some of your own research – no problems?
Our site offers you the chance to do some of your own research and investigation should you wish to do so.  In fact, this site has arguably the best search mechanism of the ATO available to our clients and it’s known as eWombat.  By typing one or more keywords, 1000s to choose from, into the eWombat window you can track down information on almost any Financial and Accounting issue.

eWombat.

In short, we all have questions on topics like Superannuation, tax rates, company taxation, interest rates, ASIC, State taxes, non profit organisations, etc.  eWombat is designed specifically to find only Australian documents that relate to these topics.  In fact, eWombat effectively gives you access to over 1,000,000 documents, including most at the ATO, thus making it a very comprehensive and powerful resource.  

How to use eWombat?

All you need do is type in one, two or three keywords related to what you want, click on Go and the options available to you are soon listed. 

Of course, a general term like super will offer far too many listings but if you type in a related topic then the list is much more manageable. 

The trick is to take a keyword or two from the question you have, type it into the eWombat window and click on Go.
