    Help to pay

    We automatically deferred payments for people and businesses in the bushfire affected postcodes in 2019–20.

    We can also help to reconstruct your tax records to access government payments.

    Recovery assistance

    The Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment (AGDRP) and the Disaster Recovery Allowance (DRA) may be available if you have been affected by bushfires. See Disaster support from other agencies for information about payments and support available in a disaster.

    If you've received a payment and need to find out how to include it in your tax return, see Disaster assistance payments and your tax.

    Support for small business

    If your tax circumstances have changed because of bushfires, you can:

    • change your GST reporting cycle to monthly reporting and payment
    • vary your PAYG instalments.
