The ATO advises that it has updated its lodgment deferral forms and can no longer accept previous versions of these forms.
The new deferral forms are available here
The ATO is unable to accept deferral requests in instances where:
- insufficient information has been provided
- the self-assessed deferral form is received more than three days after the due date.
As self-assessed deferral requests can be requested within three days of the due date, the ATO advises agents to only request deferrals for clients who genuinely need further time to lodge.
