Payroll Tax

Contributed by David Ellis and current to February 2018

Payroll tax is a tax on wages that employers pay employees under the Payroll Tax Act 2011. The tax is calculated on the amount of wages paid to employees Australia-wide each month.

If your business's Australia-wide wages exceed the threshold, you need to register with the ACT Revenue Office and lodge regular payroll tax returns.

Some businesses may form part of a group of employers, which affects the calculation of payroll tax.

All States and Territories have harmonised payroll tax in a number of key areas but other areas vary including the tax rates and thresholds.
