ATO Updated Payment Plans and Online Services Instructions

The ATO has updated their payment plan service to allow for greater flexibility in tailoring client payment plans to their needs.

Registered agents can set up payments plans in online services, without needing to contact the ATO specifically, so long as the existing debit amount is less than $100,000 and they have not defaulted on a payment plan for the relevant account more than twice in the past two years.

When you set up a plan, the ATO will suggest a default plan based on similar business circumstances, however, you have the ability to vary this default plan.

Visit the ATO tax professionals Accounts and payments webpage for full instructions on how to set up payment plans for clients for activity statements and super guarantee in online services.
