Hotels and clubs suffering from financial hardship can get help from the gaming machine tax deferral scheme until June 2017.
Venues that meet the criteria can pay their gaming machine tax in 3 equal monthly instalments each quarter.
So for example, the Office of State Revenue (OSR) will debit for the September quarter tax assessment in 3 equal instalments on 21 October, 21 November and 21 December.
Venues that have a revenue loss of 15% or more over the 12 months to the end of the current quarter, compared to the 12 months to the end of June 2007 for hotels and the 12 months to the end of May 2007 for clubs, can apply for the tax deferral.
A request for tax deferral assistance can be made each quarter. If you meet the criteria, then send an email requesting a tax deferral to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and premises licence number.
You will receive an email reply to confirm that you are allowed tax deferral assistance.
