Dear Australian Taxation Office,

I am lodging a request for documents pursuant the Freedom of Information Act 1982.

The documents I request are copies of any correspondence received in relation to the cancellation of ABN 60 171 679 448 which is the ABN for the AusBev Superannuation Fund

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney

FOI, Australian Taxation Office

Dear Phillip,

Thank you for your FOI request. We will consider your request and respond as soon as possible. FOI requests are required to be processed within 30 days from the date we receive an application. While we aim to achieve this timeframe, certain requests that are large or involve complex issues may take longer. If this is the case we will contact you to discuss when the material can be made available. Further, unless your request is for personal information, charges may apply depending on the size and complexity of your case. We will notify you if there are charges and what those charges will be. We will obtain your consent to any additional charges before processing the request.

The ATO will close at 12pm on Wednesday 24 December 2013 and will re-open on Friday 2 January 2014. We therefore seek your agreement to a 30 day extension of the processing period under section 15AA of the FOI Act to cover this shutdown period and other leave taken by staff around this time. Of course, we will continue to process your request and provide our decision as soon as we can.

If you agree to the extension, please respond by return email.
