In a broadcast message sent to tax agents on 28 September 2009, the ATO advised that agents now have until 30 November 2009 (previously 15 September 2009) to notify the ATO of any additional clients requiring the lodgment concession for the 2009 PAYG withholding payment summary annual report. Requests received after this date will not be processed. Instead, agents will receive a letter from the ATO advising that the request has been received too late.
Agents do not need to notify the ATO of clients that have registered for PAYG withholding after 1 July 2009. These clients are not required to lodge a 2009 PAYG withholding payment summary annual report and therefore do not require the concession for the 2009 year.
