About lodging an annual return for an incorporated association

You can opt to receive notification of your annual return and pay the lodgement fee online.

To start receiving the web link to your annual return form you can provide an email address when completing an online form or email your address to registration.services@justice.tas.gov.au

The online form allows you to lodge the completed annual return online and then print an invoice, which can then be paid at a service centre.

You can continue to lodge forms and make payments at a service centre if you receive an annual return by post.
