  • Pay as you go withholding and instalments tables

    Pay as you go withholding (PAYG(W)) is an amount of tax withheld from certain payments or transactions, such as salaries or wages. Pay as you go instalments (PAYG(I)) are instalments paid during the income year which go towards a taxpayer’s expected tax liability.

    The Pay as you go section contains the following tables:

    We also have a set of more detailed tables available, in the form of Excel spreadsheets, containing PAYG data at a much finer level.

    Data for each financial year includes data processed up to 31 October of the following year. For example, data for the 2013–14 financial year includes data processed up to 31 October 2014.

    The number of entities has been rounded to the nearest 5 and totals may differ from the sum of components, due to rounding.
