  • Drought doesn't always end when it rains

    10 May 2021

    Drought is an ongoing challenge that can affect entire communities.

    If you're affected by drought, we’re here to help. We know that for some people, the long-term effects of drought have been made worse by floods, cyclones and other adverse events.

    If you're running an eligible small business, there are concessions available that may help you in times of financial pressure.

    Some ways we can assist include:

    • setting up payment plans with an interest free period
    • waiving penalties or interest charges at a time you were affected by drought
    • prioritising refunds you are owed
    • giving you extra time to pay your debt
    • adjusting your pay as you go (PAYG) instalments
    • assisting primary producers manage their finances
    • preventing any refunds from being used to pay other government debts.

    Contact us or your tax professional to discuss your situation. The sooner you seek support, the easier it will be to get back on track.
