ATO defers deadline for lodgement of 2015-16 SMSF annual returns
The ATO has deferred the due date for lodgment of SMSF annual tax returns for the 2015-16 financial year.
The new deadline for lodgement of these returns is now postponed to 30 June 2017.
Commenting on the announcement, Deputy Commissioner James O’Halloran said that “the ATO has been advised by professional and industry representatives that many accounting firms and advisory firms are stretched to capacity to meet their usual annual SMSF lodgment commitments in addition to providing advice to their clients about the superannuation changes that take effect on 1 July.”
