Urgent assessments

Show more

When you request an urgent assessment, you must include

  • detailed reason(s) for urgency
  • the date by which the assessment or decision is required and
  • an undertaking that the duty will be paid immediately upon the issue of an assessment notice.

We can't guarantee an urgent assessment but will prioritise these requests, unless the transaction is eligible for self-assessment.
