What date do we have to inform you by?
We must inform you by the end of:
- in the case of an RBA surplus - the RBA interest day, which is generally the 14th day after you have lodged the activity statement that gave rise to the RBA surplus
- in the case of a credit - generally the 30th day after you lodged the return that gave rise to the entitlement to a refund.
We refer to this as the notification period.
See Timeframes for more information about how long we can retain your refund and when we have to notify you by.
