  • Tax assistance for Townsville floods

    We will provide assistance if you or your clients are affected by flooding in Townsville and surrounds.

    If your business or your clients live in one of the identified highly affected postcodes automatic deferrals will be progressively applied over the next week:

    • lodgment and payment of monthly activity statements due 21 February 2019 deferred to 21 March 2019
    • lodgment and payment of quarterly activity statements due 28 February 2019 deferred to 28 March 2019

    • lodgment and payment of fringe benefit tax returns due 28 February 2019 to 28 March 2019.

    All deferrals granted for later dates will still apply.

    If you are a registered tax or BAS agent, you can call our dedicated natural disaster hotline to discuss your own or your clients’ circumstances on 1800 700 724.

    If you or your clients are affected by the disaster but live outside the identified postcodes, phone us on 1800 806 218.
