  • A message from Deputy Commissioner Hoa Wood

    Thank you for your patience, resilience and hard work as you support your clients to lodge this tax time. We encourage everyone to continue to lodge activity statements and tax returns.

    Our focus is to ensure we provide you with the right information at the right time to support your clients. As Tax Time 2020 continues, I encourage you to use our tools and resources, and specifically our Tax Time Toolkit. The toolkits include occupation and industry-specific guides to help you and your clients understand what expenses they may be able to claim against their assessable income this year.

    You continue to help many of your clients access COVID-19 stimulus measures including the extension of the JobKeeper Payment. As the Commissioner highlighted in our recently-released Corporate plan 2020–21, we will continue to support you and your clients doing it tough.

    Our support and commitment to work with you remains our priority. We understand you and your clients' circumstances may be different, and have several support options available to allow for a tailored approach. For example, even if your clients are unable to pay on time, you may be able to set up a payment plan online so they can pay in instalments.

    Please continue to look after yourselves while you continue your important work. Together, we will continue to provide support to the community in the months ahead.
