Answer

The Australian Financial Year Calendar has an array of key dates and cut-off periods for businesses with employees. These are vital for companies to know in advance when your due dates are coming up, and to help you meet your tax reporting and payment obligations. Make work easier by keeping on top of due dates so they do not sneak up on you.

When a due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, you can lodge or pay on the next business day. This list of key dates is not comprehensive, and drawn from the Australian Taxation Office. It is just a summary and we strongly encourage that you seek professional, independent legal, financial, taxation or other advice if you need more information.
