ATO Key Lodgement Dates
The list of key dates is not comprehensive – it is a guide only. Events or timelines may change.
Unless otherwise stated, the due dates provided are for 30 June balancers only.
The payment due dates for a tax return are determined by client type, the lodgment due date and when the return is lodged.
When a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, you can lodge or pay on the next business day.
Setting up a good record-keeping system helps you keep track of your income and expenses, making it easier to meet your reporting requirements, and substantiate claims in your tax return. Keeping accurate records can also help you understand how your business is performing compared to other similar businesses, using the small business benchmarks.
When you buy a record-keeping system, consider getting Standard Business Reporting (SBR) enabled software. With SBR enabled software you can lodge a range of ATO forms, including activity statements, some tax returns, tax file number declarations and PAYG payment summaries. Even more forms will be added soon.
