COVID-19 NSW Government Payroll Tax Relief

The NSW State Government has also announced relief with respect to payroll tax. If your grouped businesses have wages of $10m or less and you pay monthly, then no payment is required for the months  of March, April and May 2020.

When annual reconciliations are lodged, there will be a tax liability reduction of 25%. Wage figures for all months must still be reported in the annual reconciliation.

The idea behind this being that non-payment of three months of payroll tax will roughly equate to the 35% reduction in the annual liability.

Further details that have been released by Revenue NSW can be found here.
