    For various reasons, ETPs may be made in more than one instalment. Payments made after the initial payment that are subject to the ETP cap, will be subject to a lower ETP cap because the cap amount is reduced by the amount of all previous payments for the same termination.

    Attention

    Lump sum payments that are not ETPs may also be subject to PAYG withholding. Use the applicable tax table to work out the amount to be withheld from these payments.
