Working out the withholding amount with Medicare levy adjustments

To work out the amount you need to withhold, you must:

  1. Use column 3 from Working out the withholding amount to find the weekly amount to be withheld from the payees weekly earnings, allowing for any tax offsets claimed.
  2. Reduce this amount by the amount of the Medicare levy adjustment.

Where the adjustment equals or exceeds the amount obtained in step 1 the amount to withhold is nil.
