The South Australian government stated that it will extend its payroll tax relief for an additional three months until December 2020—a response to the economic consequences of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The relief allows businesses with annual grouped payroll of up to $4 million* an extra three-month payroll tax waiver, in addition to the six-months of relief that they have already received.
Eligible businesses will be able to defer liabilities due in October to December 2020 until 14 January 2021.
