Are there any fees associated with using RevNet?

Use of RevNet does not incur any new or additional fees.

However, all agents/taxpayers using RevNet must have suitable hardware and software as well as access to the Internet. This may for example, require connection and usage fees being paid to an Internet Service Provider, which is the responsibility of the agent/taxpayer.

Terminals are available in Taxpayer Hall, Ground Floor, 200 Victoria Square, Adelaide, and also at the Lands Titles Office, 101 Grenfell St Adelaide, for agents/taxpayers who do not have their own Internet access or suitable hardware/software to use RevNet.

All RevNet users are required to comply with the Terms of Use when accessing and using RevNet.

Agents/taxpayers using the Stamp Duty and Certificates components and the Payroll Tax Payment Facility of RevNet are required to enter into an agreement with the Commissioner of State Taxation. This agreement sets out the terms and conditions of using RevNet and the obligations for both the agent/taxpayer and RevenueSA. All RevNet users are required to comply with these terms and conditions when accessing and using the RevNet service.

Do all RevNet users have the same access?

Agents/taxpayers need to apply for the RevNet component they wish to have access to eg. Stamp Duty, Certificates or *Payroll Tax Payment Facility. Separate applications are required for each component. Once an agent/taxpayer has been approved to use RevNet, they will only be able to access functions relative to the RevNet component/s they have been approved to use.

Within each RevNet component, there are different security levels that can be applied to individual users. The different user access levels available for each component are detailed in the RevNet Online Help.

*All taxpayers registered for payroll tax in South Australia during a financial year are automatically registered to use the Payroll Tax component of RevNet to complete their annual reconciliation. Access is restricted to completing the annual reconciliation only and does not include making on-line payments or lodging of regular returns. Taxpayers that wish to have access to the full range of functionality available in the RevNet Payroll Tax component, will need to complete a RevNet Payroll Tax Electronic Payment Authority Application or a RevNet Payroll Tax Electronic Funds Transfer application.
