    You can make credit card payments on line or over the phone. To pay on line go to ato.gov.au/howtopay, to pay over the phone call 1300 898 089. To make credit card payments you will need to supply your EFT or PRN from your payment slip.

    Direct Credit

    Transfer your payment to us online from your cheque or savings account. You can transfer funds directly to the ATO using internet banking or a computer based banking software package.

    Direct debit

    Have your payment automatically deducted from your cheque or savings account. You will need to complete a direct debit request to have your payment electronically deducted from your nominated bank account.


    Mail your payment slip together with a cheque or money order to us.

    You can send a cheque using the pre-addressed envelope provided. Be sure to include the original payment advice slip if you have lodged your activity statement electronically.

    Make cheques payable to the 'Deputy Commissioner of Taxation' and cross them 'Not negotiable'. Don't attach your cheque with pins or staples and don't send cash.

    Australia Post

    Pay by cash (up to $3,000), cheque or EFTPOS at your Post Office (subject to daily limits). Your original payment slip must be presented with your payment.

    To order additional or replacement payment slips, phone 13 72 26.

    If you make a payment at Australia Post, or you pay electronically, you must still send your completed activity statement to us either by mail or electronically, unless we advise you otherwise on the form.
