Payroll Tax - CapitalQ

Payroll Tax

Yet another tax which is so often overlooked, in fact, many business owners are oblivious to its existence.

Or what they think is Payroll Tax is actually Pay As You Go Withholding (“PAYGW”) which it most certainly is not!

Payroll Tax is a State-Based tax, completely separate to, and applies over and above, the various Federal Taxes most are familiar with.

It used to be a tax that only applied to large businesses with an extensive workforce.

Now, many are surprised at its application to what might be considered modest business enterprises.

There is no escaping Payroll Tax either. The State Revenue Offices are very proactive on the audit front (spurred on by State Governments desperate for extra revenue, especially in WA given the GST distribution controversies).

And the State Revenue Offices are armed with all the information you report to the ATO (there is a deep information sharing arrangement).

So let’s get on the front foot, ensure you are complying with your obligations before penalties and interest can apply, and while there are limited payroll tax minimisation and planning opportunities, there are still some things you can do to ensure you aren’t overpaying unnecessarily.

The Team at CapitalQ are lifestyle creators!

Sure over the past 20 years (Duncan was my advisor even before he started CapitalQ) they have saved me huge amounts of tax and helped me build wealth through property and self-managed superannuation, but the most significant thing they have done for me most recently is take all of my accounting and related record keeping and administration headaches and obligations off my hands. It has allowed my business to become incredibly easy to operate and manage, and has freed up my time to do the things I want to do, most specifically travel as much as I want!
