A range of payment options are available:
- Credit card (Visa or MasterCard only);
- Direct debit authority; or
- Electronic funds transfer (EFT).
The AMSA levies office will be closed during the Christmas/New Year shutdown period which runs from Wednesday 25 December 2019 – Wednesday 1 January 2020 inclusive.
EFT payments will therefore not be receipted during this time. Please ensure that you obtain a receipt after making your internet payment so that it may be produced as ‘proof of payment’ when requested by Australian Border Force officers.All other electronic payments will automatically generate a Payment Notification Receipt and/or Payment Receipt (AMSA 186).
Should you encounter any problems, please call the Levy Line 02 6279 5801 noting that there will be reduced capacity to respond to any queries during this period.
