Well that's the ATO's official position this week! No more will they accept that small business is struggling to survive! Apparently GST should be held in trust for the ATO & is not a business creditor like everybody else.
Well that's the position this week - no payment arrangement for late GST unless the client can come up with 50% upfront.
I’m sure the ATO will find the clients will just not come forward with a payment arrangement & we'll find more bankruptcies caused by ATO enforcement.
But who cares, the GFC is over (for everyone) isn't it?"
