What We can do for you

Payroll tax is a state tax on wages paid by employers. Different thresholds and rates apply in each Australian jurisdiction. The definition of wages is extremely broad, with various exemptions and rebates available.

Our knowledge and experience can greatly help your business get it right,
whether you’re a growing small business, a large firm, or a business advisor/representative.

Payroll Tax Registration

Registering for payroll tax can be a complicated process. Businesses must register for payroll tax if their total Australian wages is greater than the allocated threshold of a particular jurisdiction. We will work with you to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.

Audit Assistance

A payroll tax audit can be very onerous and complex process with the obligation to produce a great deal of information in a timely manner. We will work with you and take you through step-by-step to make the process as smooth as possible.

Monthly and Annual Lodgement

We can help you calculate your monthly tax liabilities and lodge these on your behalf. We can also assist you with your submission of your Annual Reconciliation/Return.

Payroll Tax Health Check - Wage Code Reviews

We offer “Health Checks” to ensure your business is on the right track. We can identify potential issues, seek exemptions and rebates available and ensure compliance with all your legislative requirements.

Contractor Reviews

Engaging contractors and knowing whether to include their payments is one of the greyest areas of payroll tax. We can help you analyse the payroll tax liability of your contractor engagements and provide guidance on substantiating any claims for exempt contractors.

Legislative & Administrative Advice

Payroll tax legislation can be quite complex and convoluted; we can provide technical advice and/or seek rulings on your behalf for those trickier aspects of the legislation that apply to your business.

Exemption Reviews & Application

Certain businesses are exempt from payroll tax; however, they must apply for an exemption, and once approved review their status every three years. We can help with both the application and review of any business exemption application or review.

Group Member Administration & Exclusion Requests

Incorrect grouping of businesses can significantly increase payroll tax costs. We can help you get it right with our group structure advisory services. We can also assist by determining the grounds that may warrant you receiving an exclusion from a grouping.

Payroll Tax Planning Services

Whether you’re a larger start-up business and need to consider the implications of payroll tax, or you want to strategise the best way to legally minimise your payroll tax costs, we can help you consider all avenues available.

Private Ruling Requests

Certain aspects of payroll tax legislation allow the Chief Commissioner of State Revenue to apply his/her discretion, we can help you prepare your submission to be considered for the best possible outcome.

Objection & Review Requests

If you disagree with an assessment outcome of an audit, or a decision of the Chief Commissioner of State Revenue it is your right to object and request a review of that outcome. We can help you through the process of an objection and help you to prepare your best case for consideration.


If you or your personnel are new to payroll tax, or would like a refresher/update, we can customise training to your needs and be available to offer follow up advice while on the job.

Seminar & Conference Speaker

Whether it be for a general overview or detailed break-down of a specific topic, we can tailor our presentations to meet your needs.
