Payroll tax due dates
You must lodge and pay your payroll tax returns on time to avoid unpaid tax interest (UTI) and penalties. You can lodge your returns online through OSRconnect.
Periodic returns and payments are due 7 days after the end of the return period (i.e. monthly or half-yearly). If a due date is on a weekend or a public holiday, the due date is the next business day.
Annual returns and payments are due by 21 July each year.
