  • Bushfire support

    As devastating bushfires continue to burn across large parts of Australia, we understand tax is probably the last thing on your mind and we want to keep it that way.

    Automatic deferrals are available for lodgments and payments for bushfire-impacted postcodes.

    If your or your clients' business or residential address is in one of the identified bushfire impacted postcodes on our dedicated Bushfires 2019–20 page you do not need to apply for these deferrals.

    We have also automatically fast-tracked refunds if your clients have one due.

    We will regularly update Bushfires 2019–20 with identified impacted postcodes and support available to affected individuals and businesses on an ongoing basis.

    If you need further assistance, or your clients are impacted by the bushfires but are not in an identified postcode, call our Registered Agent Natural Disaster Infoline 1800 700 724 for help based on your circumstances.

    We recognise the ongoing effects of this disaster. We will continue to assess the impact of the bushfires and will keep you informed as we receive more information on additional impacted postcodes and available support.

    For more information about the types of support available, see Natural disasters.
