What is Payroll Tax?
Payroll tax is a self-assessed, general purpose state and territory tax assessed on wages paid or payable by an employer to its employees when the total wage bill of an employer (or group of employers) exceeds a threshold amount. The payroll tax rates and thresholds vary between states and territories.
Where can I learn more?
Harmonised payroll tax webinars are facilitated on Tuesdays and are open to anyone registered or who may need to be registered for payroll tax with an Australian state or territory revenue office. The sessions are primarily designed to be of assistance to newly registered payroll taxpayers and are also available to those new to the role of managing employer’s payroll tax commitments or those seeking to refresh their payroll tax knowledge.
