Electronic Duties Returns (EDR) payments are either disbursed via Electronic Lodgement Network Operators (ELNO) to Revenue NSW, or paid directly to Revenue NSW.
Payments made directly to Revenue NSW fall into two categories:
For transactions not settling in ELNO, an EDR approval holder must have the duty payable available to them prior to processing transactions through EDR. This is the case for all EDR transactions, except those where the duty payable will be collected at settlement.
If you settle via ELNO, the duty and interest (if applicable) payable is displayed automatically in the ELNO Financial Settlement Schedule. You can pay this amount as an electronic disbursement from ELNO.
Note: A settlement in ELNO cannot proceed until the duty payable is received by us or a commitment to pay via a ELNO disbursement is arranged.
The weekly return period is from Sunday to Saturday. At the end of each return period, you must request a Return Period Invoice to ensure an accurate reconciliation.
A payment slip is attached to the Return Period Invoice, which shows the total tax payable and due date for payment. Use this payment slip if you are making an electronic payment for the total amount payable.
If paying by cheque/s, use the relevant remittance slip from your book of remittance slips. Complete the remittance slip, attach the cheque/s and send them to us using the reply paid envelopes we supply.
Do not send the invoice, schedules, notices or correspondence when making a payment. These must be retained as part of your records.
Your EDR service (document stamping) may be suspended if your weekly payment is not received by the due date.

If paying electronically, use the payment slip details on the relevant notice of assessment.
