You may be able to arrange interest-free payment plans for your tax debt. However, the tax office would usually only;y allow for activity statement debt. Therefore the requirements would be:

  • The activity statement debt must be paid off over 12 months.
  • Secondly, your previous lodgement history and payments have been conducted well.
  • Thirdly, you have only missed one payment on a plan in the last 12 months.
  • Plus you have not been able to secure finance to clear your debt.
  • However, you need to agree to the payment plan payment to be by direct debit for the 12 months.
  • Finally, you have been able to display an ability to meet all of your tax commitments.
