In SA - Businesses with Australian grouped payroll of up to $4 million won't need to pay payroll tax from April to September.
Business groups with annual Australian grouped wages of up to $4 million are eligible to not have to pay any payroll tax for the months of April to September 2020 (for the return periods of March 2020 to August 2020).
Where businesses meet the criteria of Australian grouped wages below $4 million for 2018-19 no application will be required – RevenueSA will notify these businesses through RevenueSA Online.
Monthly payroll tax returns must still be lodged to capture wages for the month, with no payment to be made.
Waiver of payroll tax for the six months will be finalised as part of the Annual Reconciliation process for 2019-20 and 2020-21.
An online application form will be made available for businesses that were not liable for payroll tax in 2018-19.
As the administrative arrangements are developed further information will be made available.
