The ATO has granted an automatic two-month deferral for lodgements and payments to those impacted by the ongoing bushfire crisis.

If you’ve been impacted by these bushfires, ATO doesn’t want you to be concerned about your tax affairs. Now is the time for you, your family and community. ATO will help you sort out your tax affairs later.

For identified impacted postcodes, ATO will automatically grant deferrals for lodgments and payments due. You don’t need to apply for these deferrals.

If you have been affected by this disaster but your postcode is not currently in the identified impacted postcodes list, you don’t need to worry. When you’re ready and if you need assistance, phone ATO Emergency Support Infoline on 1800 806 218 for help.

Or give our team at SPS Business Consultants a call ☎️ (03) 9904 9261
