Employment Taxes

PAYG Withholding

Employing staff can be a necessary part of doing business however it comes with a lot more paperwork and things to be aware of such as employment laws, contractual arrangements, superannuation and of course PAYG Withholding. Withholding taxes from an employee's salary can be more complex than people might think. Common areas of confusion include:

  • - Whether contractors are subject to withholding
  • - How much to withhold when you send staff overseas or receiving seconded staff from overseas
  • - Withholding on termination and retirement payments
  • - Withholding on allowances


Payroll Tax

The pressure, requirements and time cost placed on taxpayers to correctly calculate and comply with payroll tax obligations nationwide is constantly increasing, with harmonisation across different Australian jurisdictions and the Revenue Offices announcing a more ‘aggressive’ compliance program.

TF Accountants can help relieve payroll tax pressure and time cost. Our advisers will ensure that you are utilising available exemptions and exclusions in respect of ‘taxable wages’, contractors and grouping etc., helping you to legitimately minimise the amount of payroll tax due and mitigate the risk of the imposition of penalties and interest.
