ATO lodgement penalty ending

ATO’s lodgment penalty amnesty is about to end

The ATO is remitting failure to lodge penalties for eligible small businesses. Businesses which have not yet taken advantage of the ATO’s lodgment penalty amnesty only have until 31 December 2023 to do so.

Businesses must meet the following criteria in order to be eligible for the amnesty:
-had an annual turnover under $10 million when the original lodgment was due;
-have overdue income tax returns, business activity statements or FBT returns that were due between 1 December 2019 and 28 February 2022; and
-lodge between 1 June and 31 December 2023.

When taxpayers lodge their eligible income tax returns, business activity statements and FBT returns, failure to lodge penalties will be remitted without the need to apply.
