Bushfire Deferral

19 Feb 2020

Devastating bushfires have been burning across large parts of Australia since late 2019. If you have been impacted by these bushfires, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) understands that your priority is on your family and community at this time.


Walcha & district communities have been identified by the ATO as an impacted postcode. The ATO has automatically applied deferrals for lodgement and payment due for income tax, business activity statements, instalment activity statements, self-managed superfunds, and fringe benefit tax return lodgements, and their associated payments, have a deferral date of 28 May 2020.


If you are ready to lodge sooner, you do not have to wait until the deferred due date. We recommend you only use the deferral date if required.


Super guarantee payments
Employers still need to meet super guarantee obligations for their employees. No extension has been granted for superannuation guarantee lodgement and payments.
