How to Pay Your ATO Tax Bills With Credit Card and Earn Points

Did you know that when you pay ATO bills directly you typically earn NO or reduced credit card points?

This is because when paying ATO & government bills (and other bills such as insurance, rates & utilities) these billers are categorised by your card issuer to earn reduced or ZERO credit card reward points. Make sure you join the growing number of Australian businesses using B2Bpay to pay the ATO who are earning FULL credit card points, and additional bonus Qantas Points on top of that. Further more, you can likely claim the card processing fee as a tax deduction.

Businesses all over Australia have made the ATO B2Bpay’s most popular biller as they reap the rewards of using B2Bpay to pay these bills.

B2Bpay is the most rewarding way to pay the ATO

  • Earn FULL credit card points^ – unlike the no or reduced points you typically earn when paying these bills directly;
  • Earn Qantas Points on these and ALL your business bills*; and
  • Boost cash flow by utilising your credit card interest free days to hold your bank funds longer^.

Use B2Bpay to pay the ATO and with many credit cards, you can earn at least double the credit card points^ than if you paid directly, without paying double the card processing fee. What’s more, with B2Bpay, you also earn Qantas Points*.

The only fee for using B2Bpay is a card processing fee from 1.2% to 2.4% excl. GST (or 0.84% to 1.64% after eligible company tax deduction), depending on your card type. This fee is outweighed by the value of the credit card and Qantas Points you can earn and the cash flow benefits.

Turn taxes into points and flights

For example; if you paid $240,000 per year in BAS, payroll taxes and other business expenses using B2Bpay, you could earn:

  • 240,000 Qantas Points (or credit card points) every year; and
  • 2,400 Qantas Points for your business every year (or even more by paying B2Bpay Bonus Billers).

That’s enough points for 2 x return business class flights from Sydney or Melbourne to London every year plus approximately $1,517 in taxes, fees and carrier charges.
