Extensions and Remissions

Extensions and Remissions

If your accountant is lodging for you, generally, so long as you have a good lodgement history with the ATO (see below), you receive a substantial extension on your due date for both lodgement and payment compared to those who lodge themselves.
 
Most individual tax returns will be due on 15 May 2019 given that you have lodged your previous year tax return on time (that’s right, almost an entire year after 30 June).  And if your Accountant has a good record with the ATO, they actually can probably get a further extension on that for you if you really need it!
