  • Lodging your annual GST return

    Your annual GST return and tax return must be lodged and paid by 28 February. If you do not need to lodge a tax return, you must still lodge and pay your annual GST return.

    You can elect to report GST annually between 1 July and:

    • 21 August – if you currently report monthly
    • 28 October – if you currently report quarterly.

    We will issue your annual GST return in July. The first return will be for the period from the date your election took effect to 30 June. After that it will relate to the period 1 July to 30 June. You do not need to re-elect each year.

    You can choose to report and pay GST annually as long as both of the following apply:

    • you are not required to register for GST, but you have registered voluntarily
    • you have not elected to pay GST by instalments.
