A relief package is now available for all Queensland businesses, which means you don’t need to lodge or pay QLD payroll tax returns before 31 July 2020.
|Return period||Normal due date||Deferred due date|
|February||9 March 2020||3 August 2020|
|March||7 April 2020||3 August 2020|
|January-March quarter||7 April 2020||3 August 2020|

|May||8 June 2020||3 August 2020|
|2019-20 annual||21 July 2020||3 August 2020|
During this time, you can:
- lodge returns in OSRconnect, without paying them; this may help you to keep track of your liabilities, so that you know what you need to pay by 3 August
- continue to lodge and pay returns as usual.
If you choose to defer lodging returns, you can resume at any stage during this time.
