  • NSW and QLD bushfires: support is available

    2 December 2019

    If you've been impacted by the recent catastrophic bushfires in New South Wales and Queensland, we want you to focus on getting your other affairs in order and not worry about your tax at this time.

    If your business or residential address is in an identified impacted postcode, we've automatically applied a two month deferral for activity statement lodgments and payments due. You or your agent don't need to apply for a deferral.

    • For quarterly Business activity statements (BAS) due on 11 November or 28 November for businesses using a tax professional, the new deferred date is 28 January 2020.
    • For monthly BAS normally due on 21 November, the new deferred date is 21 January 2020.

    For monthly BAS normally due on 21 December, the new deferred date is 21 January 2020.

    We've also automatically fast tracked your refund if you have one due to you.

    Employers will still need to meet their ongoing super guarantee obligations for employees.

    When you're ready, phone us on 1800 806 218 for help and advice. There are many ways we can help you with your tax affairs, including reconstructing your records if they have been destroyed.

    If you are affected and not in one of the impacted postcodes, phone us on 1800 806 218, and we can provide support based on your individual circumstances.
