For small businesses in the hospitality, tourism, seafood production, and exports sectors.

Payroll tax waivers for the hospitality, tourism and seafood sectors and for Tasmanian businesses with payrolls less than $5 million which have been impacted by coronavirus to ensure that these businesses will pay no payroll taxes for the entire 2019-20 year.

The Government will extend the previously announced Payroll tax waivers for the hospitality, tourism and seafood sectors and for Tasmanian businesses with payrolls less than $5 million which have been impacted by coronavirus to ensure that these businesses will pay no payroll taxes for the entire 2019-20 year. This measure will be delivered through a combination of payroll tax refunds and waivers.

  • Payroll tax liabilities will be waived for hospitality, tourism and seafood industry businesses for the last four months of 2019-20.
  • Other businesses with payrolls of up to $5 million will be able to apply, based on the impact of virus, to have their payroll tax waived for April to June 2020.

The health, safety and wellbeing of Tasmanians is our number one priority as we face the challenge of coronavirus. The Tasmanian Liberal Government has prepared a $420 million stimulus package to support Tasmania as we tackle the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Further information will be provided as it becomes available.
