The Commissioner has released some short guidance on deferral requests during peak lodgement periods.  During these periods, deferral requests may take the full 28 day processing time.

With the tax return lodgement date of 15 May 2018 for some entities having just passed, the guidance notes that these returns can be lodged up until 5 June 2018, provided any liability is paid by this date.

The due date for 2017 self-managed super fund annual returns has been extended to 30 June 2018.
