  • Natural disaster support

    If you've been affected by an event or natural disaster such as a bushfire, cyclone, drought, flood, or storm, we can support you.

    We understand that family and property are your priority at this time. We'll give you time to recover and help you sort out your tax affairs when you're ready.

    We generally stop sending correspondence to people in areas affected by major disasters. Once the crisis has passed, we can help you get back on track.

    Depending on your situation, we may be able to:

    • give you extra time to pay tax or lodge tax returns, activity statements or other obligations
    • set up a payment plan tailored to your individual situation
    • remit penalties or interest charged during the time you've been affected.
