Lodgement of Form 6010 to avoid annual fee

I knew this in the past, but I’d forgotten… so I’m just sharing in the hope of saving someone else some $

If you lodge a deregistration application prior to the due date of the annual fee, they will cancel the annual fee. HOWEVER, there must be enough time to publish the notice of intention to deregister. So you need to allow at least a week, not 3 days like I just tried to do :frowning:

They used to allow it right up the due date!
I got caught out trying to lodge the day before a couple of months ago. They’ve gotten a lot stricter on dates and over the phone amendments too :frowning:
