• Activity statement generate dates

    We provide the estimated activity statement generation dates throughout the financial year. These are the times we extract data from our records to produce activity statements.

    The generate date may be subject to change at short notice to accommodate other priorities, including:

    • urgent system maintenance
    • changed government or administrative priorities – such as the introduction of new government initiatives
    • in response to changed community circumstances – such as a natural disaster.

    If you elect to receive or have lodged previous activity statements electronically, you generally receive them three to four days after the generation date.

    If you use the Business Portal or our online services for individuals, we will notify you when your activity statement is available to access and complete online.

    For activity statements sent by post, you will generally receive them up to three weeks after the generation date.

    Where the legislative due date falls on a weekend or public holiday, the due date is the next working day.

    Minimising delays

    We recommend you lodge your income tax return with enough time for us to process before the generate date. This allows prompt delivery of activity statements with up-to-date information.

    Update your details (if required)

    Update the following details, allowing enough time before the generate date to process the changes:

    • postal address or preferred method of delivery for your activity statement
    • business account details.
