* The application for general approval can be made at any time during the year and must be filed by the 7th day of the 2nd month following the end of your income year.
** The date for submitting the tax return for a business without a tax agent’s extension of time (EOT) is usually 7 July of the year in which the GA/CAM was submitted. If a customer does not have a tax agent’s extension of time (EOT) with the income tax return usually due 7 July, they should contact the RDTI team in the first instance to discuss their options and to obtain a further EOT.
*** It is proposed that the due dates for CAM applications for the 2021-2022 income year will change, more information will be available soon.
Additional notes:
  • If the due date falls on a weekend or public holiday, RDTI returns and forms may be filed the next working day.
  • Even with a non-standard balance date, customers usually have an EOT to 31 March if linked to a tax agent.
