Calculating the amount you pay

You may be able to choose between two options to calculate how much to pay, instalment amount or instalment rate. If you’re eligible to choose, this will be shown on your first activity statement or instalment notice, and you must indicate your choice on this form.

Option 1 is to pay the amount we calculate while Option 2 is to work out the amount yourself using the instalment rate we provide.

High rates and amounts may occur in some situations. If you believe your rate or amount is too high, you can vary it.

Once you’ve chosen your option, you must continue to use that option for the remainder of the income year. If you want to change your option, you need to wait until the first quarter in the next income year.
