Payment dates for ANZAC Day 2018 if you don’t need to report

We won't delay payments because of the public holiday, but we may pay you earlier than usual. An early payment is your normal payment, just paid early.

Where we pay an early payment, we pay as close to and before your usual payment day. You'll need to budget so this payment lasts until your next payment is due.

If you don't need to report earnings, we'll pay you early.
