Reporting a breach of the foreign investment rules

If you have information about a suspected breach of Australia’s foreign investment rules you can report this to the ATO. All reports of suspected non‑compliance are actioned where appropriate. It is important to try to provide as much factual detail as you can so we are able to fully assess the information. Complete the details known to you and attach any supporting documents.

If you would like further information about what constitutes a breach, please review Australia’s Foreign Investment Policy.

Your privacy is protected by the Privacy Act 1988. Due to privacy laws we are unable to share details specific to any foreign investment compliance investigation or application. We equally respect your privacy in reporting the compliance matter, as well as the privacy of the owner of the reported property.

You can also report your concerns by calling the Australian Taxation Office 1800 050 377.
