  • Remitting PAYG withholding

    If you notify your PAYG withholding liability on an activity statement, you should continue to follow your existing processes. If you are a large withholder you must continue to pay the amounts you withhold to us electronically.

    Note: If you are a large withholder, follow your existing process – When to pay and report on activity statements.

    The ATO is looking at how to improve the activity statement process for employers using STP data. We are currently working with industry co-designing a number of enhancements. These include:

    • pre-filling your activity statement labels W1 and W2 from July 2019 (small and medium withholders) with Single Touch Payroll (STP) information you have reported
    • showing your opening and closing balances for your activity statement account.

    We will provide you with further information on these changes when the design is finalised.
