The NSW Office of State Revenue (OSR) has released a ruling indicating that the current practice of allowing employers to retrospectively register roles under the NSW Jobs Action Plan will change with effect from 23 November 2015.
Instead from the 23 November 2015, the following practice will apply:
This Revenue Ruling will apply to applications for registration received on or after 23 November 2015.
If you were considering making a claim under the NSW Jobs Action Plan – time is now of the essence. In order to be guaranteed retrospective registration of roles created between 1 July 2011 and August 2015, the registration needs to be submitted prior to 23 November 2015, so the time to act is now. Further, if you have previously submitted a retrospective registration of roles, you need to ensure that you register all subsequent new roles either by 23 November, or within 90 days of appointment.
