Payroll platform: Payroll tax reporting

Overview

Payroll tax is a state tax. Assessment comes from the wages paid or payable to employees, including directors and contractors, by an employer (or group of employers) whose total Australian taxable wages exceed the threshold amount. Each state and territory have its own payroll tax legislation, with different rates and thresholds.

The Payroll Tax Reporting feature allows you to create a report on your organisation's payroll tax based on a specific reporting period or month and also narrowed down by earnings location and/or employing entity. You can also use this feature to download an excel file of this data or save the information in a printable PDF format.

Important

The Payroll platform breaks the figures in the report down on a per state basis so you can easily identify and report each component to the relevant Office of State Revenue (OSR). If the report includes a column with the header Unknown, this shows you have not assigned a State and/or Territory to a location. As a result, the platform will allocate the wages and/or super costed to that location into the Unknown column.
