Claims made in today’s media that Tax Time 2017 is under threat due to our recent system outages are completely without foundation. We are absolutely confident that taxpayers will be able to lodge their returns and receive refunds on time from 1 July. It is disappointing that some people are trying to create unnecessary mischief during what has already been a challenging and testing time for the community and the ATO. This is very unfortunate as it undermines the commitment and good work that our people have undertaken to return ATO services to normal operation and bring them back online as quickly and reliably as possible.
For all our business clients please note that the October - December 2016 BAS is due on 28th February 2017. In order for us to complete your BAS, please have your information to us no later than 17th February 2017. This gives us time to check all BAS's and ensure correct GST compliance is met.
