  • Commissions, bonuses or similar payments

    Attention

    If a commission, bonus or similar payment relates to work your payee performed for more than one pay period (or for an undefined period), you calculate withholding by applying either Method A or Method B (ii).

    Attention

    Do not use this tax table for payments for a single pay period.

    If the commission, bonus or similar payment relates to work your payee performed in a single pay period (for example, a week, a fortnight or a month) the amount is added to all their other earnings for the current period. Withholding is then calculated using the standard PAYG withholding tax tables.
