The ATO will not be filling the position of assistant deputy commissioner, superannuation, in the wake of Stuart Forsyth’s departure "for the foreseeable future."

On Friday last week, the ATO confirmed the departure of assistant deputy commissioner Stuart Forsyth.

Mr Forsyth left the ATO on Thursday, 27 November, and is due to start his role on the SuperIQ board today.

An ATO spokesperson has since confirmed to SMSF Adviser they will not be filling Mr Forsyth's role "for the forseeable future."

However, the responsibilities of this position will be distributed amongst the superannuation leadership team, the ATO said, which include assistant commissioner, SMSF segment, superannuation, Matthew Bambrick and deputy commissioner, superannuation, Alison Lendon. 

The ATO could not comment further on the specific nature of Mr Forsyth’s departure.

Mr Forsyth’s time at the ATO has been commended by Taxpayers Australia’s superannuation products and services manager, Reece Agland.

“Stuart was a great leader at the ATO and they will miss his expertise. Congratulations to Stuart Forsyth,” Mr Agland said on Twitter.
