Payment plan

There are 3 types of payment plan available:

  • Extended payment option (EPO) to make 3 equal payments 45, 90 and 150 days after the date of the assessment notice. You must apply within 35 days of your assessment notice. Find out how to apply for an EPO.

Interest applies to instalment and payment plans, but does not apply to an EPO (unless your second or third instalment is late).
