  • Natural disasters - October 2013

    What were the disasters?

    In October 2013, bushfires caused significant damage to some areas of New South Wales.

    What are we doing to help?

    If your business or residential address is in one of the identified affected postcodes listed below, we will automatically make arrangements to defer the following taxation obligations (you don't need to apply for a deferral):

    • lodgment and payment of income tax returns due between October and December 2013 to 28 January 2014
    • lodgment and payment of the September quarterly activity statement from the original due date of 28 October 2013 to 28 January 2014
    • lodgment and payment of the September monthly activity statement from the original due date of 21 October 2013 to 28 January 2014
    • lodgment and payment of the October monthly activity statement from the original due date of 21 November 2013 to 28 January 2014
    • lodgment and payment of the November monthly activity statement from the original due date of 21 December 2013 to 28 January 2014.

    Exclusions to the above deferrals:

    • Large withholders (previously withheld more than $1 million annually or are part of a corporate group that has) are not eligible for the above deferrals.
    • The Commissioner cannot vary the contribution due date or waive the nominal interest on late super guarantee payments.

    All deferrals granted for later dates will still apply. If you are affected by a natural disaster and you need further assistance or your business is outside the following postcodes, phone us on 1800 806 218.
