Don't let changes to the ATO Payment Plan catch you off guard

Navigating Payment Plans with ATO

Understanding the recent changes

Don't get caught off guard by the changes..

As a registered BAS and TAX agent firm, one of the common requests we receive from clients is the need to set up a payment plan with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) regarding their tax debt. However, it has come to our attention that the ATO has recently become stricter with approving payment plan applications.

According to sources, the ATO is taking a more rigorous approach to assessing applications for payment plans.

🟠 Taxpayers who previously may have been approved for a payment plan are now being denied

🟠 and those who are approved are being offered stricter terms and conditions

This stricter approach by the ATO is a result of their efforts to crack down on tax debt and improve their debt recovery processes.

This means that the process of applying for a payment plan has become more rigorous and requires the submission of a significant amount of information.

As a result, it is important for clients to understand that the process of applying for a payment plan is now more time-consuming and requires a greater level of attention to detail.

This is where we at Lynden, can assist by guiding you through the process and ensuring that all the necessary information is submitted to the ATO.

However, it is important to note that the ATO will only approve a payment plan if they are satisfied that the client is unable to pay their tax debt in full and on time. In addition, the ATO will consider the client's ability to pay, their financial situation, and the reason for their inability to pay.

In conclusion, the process of applying for a payment plan with the ATO has become stricter and more time-consuming.



We are here to assist you in navigating this process and ensuring that your application is submitted correctly and in a timely manner.
