The Plutus Payroll fraud has prompted the Australian Taxation Office to review and strengthen its internal integrity and fraud controls. The ATO has also revamped its fraud awareness training programs, while senior executives have participated in regular meetings of the Inspector-General of Taxation’s review of fraud control management. The son and daughter of former deputy commissioner Michael Cranston are facing criminal charges over his role in the Plutus fraud, while Cranston himself has been charged with abuse of public office.
