Further lodgement deferrals unlikely – but it’s not all bad news!

We know this has been a highly stressful time for tax agents and BAS agents, trying to assist their clients to stay above water with the various stimulus packages as well as the annual lodgement season. The ATO has already extended the lodgement and payment date for 2019 income tax returns to 5 June 2020 (and 30 June 2020 for SMSF returns) but that date is looming quickly. Accordingly, on 21 May 2020 the professional bodies made a joint submission to the ATO and Treasury requesting a further extension of the lodgement date to 30 June 2020.
