• Assistance with lodgment and payment of the November 2016 business activity statement

    Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to bring our systems back online. Our ATO system update page provides the latest information about availability of our systems.

    We encourage lodgment and payment of the November monthly Business Activity Statement on time. However, anyone experiencing difficulties with lodging or making payments due to our system outages will not be subject to penalties, interest or follow-up action providing lodgment and payment is made by 10 January 2017. These concessions will be automatically applicable without taxpayers or agents contacting the ATO.

    Any other taxpayer unable to make a payment or lodge a form as a result of the outage will not be disadvantaged.
