Tax relief for COVID-19 affected businesses

Untitled Document

Various forms of tax relief are available to businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

These are additional to the Wage Subsidy and Leave Payments described here.

If your business is struggling to pay tax you may qualify for instalment payment or a tax write-off. You can apply for an instalment arrangement online through MyIR here.

Other options are also available including re-estimating provisional tax to reflect the current situation. Under limited circumstances penalties for late payments incurred due to COVID-19 may also be remitted.
