    Tips

    When cancelling a tax type, it is important to note:

    • the Cancel tax type button will only display where tax types are eligible for cancellation
    • you cannot cancel an ABN using the portal
    • the fuel tax credit (FTC) tax type can be cancelled by itself, but FTC must be cancelled if GST is cancelled.

    Cancelling a tax type using the portal will update records immediately.
