We have already provided lodgment program assistance to agents and clients through the application of automatic deferrals for some May and June obligations. However, we also understand that under the current circumstances more time may be needed.
If agents are unable to meet lodgment due dates for these obligations, the ATO will waive any late lodgment penalty if lodgment is completed by 30 June 2020. While General Interest Charges (GIC) will still apply automatically, the ATO will favourably consider any reasonable request for remission, plus access to the lodgment program will remain unchanged and there will be no negative impacts to future dealings with the ATO.
For all other COVID-19 matters refer to our COVID-19 web page for the latest information and support.
Regretfully, users were unable to attach files (attachments) to Portal Mail items as a result of a system update applied late last week.
A fix for this problem was determined and applied during our regular Tuesday overnight maintenance period and was successfully tested early on Wednesday morning.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
