If you are wondering how these changes will affect you, please don't hesitate to contact our office to discuss with one of our team members. 



Keep talking with the ATO

If you have a current or upcoming debt with the Australian Taxation Office and unable to pay the amount in full by the due date then please contact our office and we may be able to assist you by organising a temporary payment arrangement with them. 

It is really important that you keep communicating with the ATO, even if you don't have good news for them!

Please see the ATO link below for more information on Payment Plans and what is involved and required

Please note when entering into a Payment Arrangement the ATO does have strict conditions you must follow:

  • Current lodgements (BAS or Tax) must be up to date
  • All future lodgements must be lodged on time by the due date/s
  • All future debts must be paid in full by the due date/s
  • Any credits received will be applied towards your current debt 
  • Payment must be received and processed by the ATO by the due date - we recommend making payment 2 days prior

Payment arrangements are not intended to be in place long term.

ASIC and MyGov Scam Warnings

ASIC Scam Warning

ASIC have advised us that another batch of Scam Emails have recently been doing the rounds and had been sent to a large number of people .  If you have received an email recently from ASIC please check the details below:

Some flaws in the FAKE emails include:

  • The sender displays the name "ASIC Messaging Service" however this can be misleading.
  • Renewal date is incorrect
  • The subject does not include your entities name 
  • The renewal link goes to a website not associated with ASIC (You can find this out by hovering over the link). 

If you are still unsure you can also check the renewal date on the ASIC site to confirm.

Please note that if Jamiesons Accounting acts as your ASIC Agent, all of your ASIC communication will come via our office, and we will forward to you any instructions regarding the communication. 

For more information about ASIC scam emails, please follow this link.

MyGov Scam Warning 

A false email is also circulating claiming to come from MyGov and contains the subject line, "Important Information regarding your account" and also includes the MyGov logo. 

The email asks you to click on a link to claim your refund and leads to a fake tax refund form asking for personal details.
