  • Get PAYG withholding obligations right

    20 February 2019

    From 1 July 2019, you will only be able to claim deductions for payments you make to your workers (employees or contractors) where you have met the pay as you go (PAYG) withholding rules for each payment.

    In order to claim a deduction, you need to:

    • withhold the required amount (if applicable) before you pay your worker
    • report that amount to us.

    If you make a mistake, don't worry, you won't lose your deduction if you:

    • withheld the wrong amount – lodge a voluntary disclosure in the approved form
    • withheld the right amount but made a mistake when reporting – correct the mistake as soon as possible.

    Having trouble? Contact us as soon as possible and we'll work with you to find a solution.
