Hi @John9

 

If the progress of your return is showing Issued - $ Amount and you are looking at your notice of assessment online and it is showing it will be issued by cheque then the date of payment will be the date the cheque will be issued - you will need to allow time for Australian post for delivery and not sure if there may be further postal delays due to Covid19.

 

It is good to keep in mind that supplying a bank account for a electronic refunds would be the fastest and most secure way to receive a refund.
