Where an objection to an assessment or a decision has been lodged, RevenueSA is still permitted to take action to recover the outstanding debt. Where required, RevenueSA will take some form of action to protect the revenue base such as placing a charge or caveat over property.

When you lodge an objection it may be appropriate to discuss this issue with RevenueSA.

It is important to be aware that interest will continue to accrue on any outstanding debt. It is suggested that payments could be made towards the debt whilst an objection is being considered, in the event the objection is disallowed. If the objection is upheld, in your favour, then any overpayments together with interest, will be refunded to you.

In matters where an appeal is lodged, to the Commissioner’s assessment/decision or the Minister’s determination, a payment of half (50%) of the outstanding debt must be made prior to lodgement of the appeal with the Court (other than for first home owner grant debts).

For more information on how to lodge an objection or appeal please see our objections and appeals page.
