Payroll Tax Supplement changes

From 1 January 2015, the Payroll Tax Supplement applicable to residential aged care providers will no longer be paid.

From January 2015, reference to the Payroll Tax Supplement will be removed from the online claim form. It will be removed from the paper claim form from February 2015.

If you choose to complete your January 2015 claim using the paper claim form, you will notice reference to the supplement is still included on the cover page. The option to claim the Payroll Tax Supplement is not valid. You will not be able to claim the Payroll Tax Supplement (from the January 2015 claim month onwards) by completing this section.

You can visit the Department of Social Services website for more information about the cessation of the Payroll Tax SupplementExternal link.
