    Lodgment due dates

    Lodgment due date

    Entity description

    31 October 2022

    Tax return for all individuals and trusts where one or more prior year tax returns were outstanding as at 30 June 2022.

     

    Tax return for clients prosecuted for non-lodgment of prior year tax returns and advised of a lodgment due date of 31 October 2022.

     

    Note: Some prosecuted clients may have been given a different lodgment due date. Refer to the letter you received for the client's applicable due date.

    15 January 2023

    Large and medium trusts (annual total income more than $10 million in latest year lodged) where the trust was taxable in latest year lodged.

    28 February 2023

    Large and medium trusts (annual total income more than $10 million in latest year lodged) where the trust was non-taxable in latest year lodged.

    28 February 2023

    New registrant large and medium trusts.

    31 March 2023

    Tax return for individuals and trusts whose latest return resulted in a tax liability of $20,000 or more (excluding large and medium trusts).

    15 May 2023

    Tax returns for all remaining individuals and trusts not required earlier and not eligible for the 5 June concession (including new registrations).

    Concession for tax returns due 15 May

    We allow lodgment of tax returns past the lodgment due date of 15 May for:

    • individuals
    • partnerships
    • trusts.

    The concession allows these tax returns to be lodged by 5 June without penalty, provided that any payment required is also made by this date.

    This is a concessional arrangement to remit the FTL penalty, where lodgment and payment are made by 5 June for tax returns otherwise due by 15 May 2023.

    You do not need to apply for a deferral to receive the 5 June concession date – however, you must apply if you need a lodgment deferral beyond 5 June for these clients.

    Payment of individual and trust tax returns due 15 May

    Staggered payment date arrangements exist for individual and trust clients whose tax returns have a lodgment due date of 15 May 2023. Your client’s payment due date will depend on when their tax return is lodged and processed. If the tax return is lodged:

    • up to and including 12 February 2023, the payment date is 21 March 2023
    • from 13 February 2023 to 12 March 2023 (inclusive), the payment date is 21 April 2023
    • from 13 March 2023, the payment date is 5 June 2023.

    The payment dates above are the earliest possible due dates for payment of tax and provide at least two weeks for processing. If processing of a tax return takes longer than this, the actual due date for payment on the notice of assessment will be later than the dates indicated above.
