• Reporting and lodgment dates

    Reporting and lodgment dates are shown in the table below.

    Where a due date falls on a weekend or public holiday, the lodgment or payment may be made on the first business day after the due date without incurring a penalty or general interest charge.

    Super contributions surcharge payment dates and assessment variation advice lodgment dates are notional and subject to change.

    Super contributions surcharge was abolished on 1 July 2005. We will continue to issue surcharge assessments in relation to contributions made before 1 July 2005. Members of constitutionally protected funds will also become liable for the surcharge upon exit from their fund.

    Super funds' pay as you go (PAYG) instalments are notified on their activity statements. Lodgment of the activity statement and payment of any net amount must be made on or before the due date for lodgment.
