A Payment Advice is generated from RevenueSA Online after you submit your return which will provide you with information you need to make your payment.

Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

If you make payment by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), you will be able to use the details from the Payment Advice to make payment via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) with your financial institution.

Please note the payment reference number will be different for each return.

Payment by BPAY

If you make payment by BPAY it is important that the correct biller code and reference number printed on the Payment Advice is used. This will ensure correct allocation of the payment. If the incorrect number is used, the payment may not be allocated as intended and penalty tax and/or interest may apply.

Please note the payment reference number will be different for each return.

How do I make payments for returns?

Once you submit your return, a payment advice will be generated which will provide you with details on how to make the payment.

When will the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payment be shown on my bank statement?

An Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payment advice generated in RevenueSA Online contains the BSB, Account Number and Payment Reference Number. Once your transfer is initiated with your financial institution, the Payment Reference Number used and the amount transferred will appear on your bank statement.

Can I make additional payments?

If you need to modify a return, which results in an additional payment to be made, you can pay the additional amount via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or BPay.

If payment was made on the original return lodgement, you only need to pay the difference from your original return and the amended return.

Payments made via EFT or BPAY must contain the correct payment reference number. This will ensure that the payment is allocated correctly.

Can I cancel a payment that has been processed?

Once processed, a payment cannot be reversed.

If you have made an incorrect payment via EFT or BPay, RevenueSA are unable to stop the payment. Please contact your financial institution.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • If your organisation will not be able to make a payment on time, please contact RevenueSA before the due date for advice.

    If your organisation fails to submit a return and does not notify RevenueSA beforehand a default notice of assessment will be generated based on the wage estimates provided by your organisation during the annual reconciliation or if they have not yet submitted an annual reconciliation, their registration. A default notice of assessment will include penalty tax at a rate of 25% and the market rate of interest plus a premium component of 8% in accordance with the Taxation Administration Act 1996.

  • If your organisation has received a default assessment and would like RevenueSA to review any penalty tax and/or interest, please email RevenueSA at payrolltax@sa.gov.au stating the taxpayer number, a request for the remittance and the reason why the payment was late.

    RevenueSA may remit or partially remit any penalty tax and/or interest on a default assessment. Remissions are assessed on a case-by-case basis and there is no guarantee that a remission may be approved.

    It is important to note RevenueSA will not consider any remittance of penalty tax and/or interest until a payment for the monthly lodgement has been made.
