• How often you lodge and pay

    PAYG instalments are generally paid quarterly. You may also have the option of paying two instalments a year or an annual instalment. Some businesses must make monthly PAYG instalments.

    When we write to tell you that you have to pay instalments, we'll let you know how often to pay and the options available to you.

    Before you lodge your tax return, you need to:

    • pay all instalment amounts due, and
    • lodge activity statements or instalment notices (if required).
