09 Jul 12 Annual PAYG instalment
The ATO advises tax agents that in early July 2012, it will send annual PAYG instalment notices to taxpayers. Payment is due by 21 October 2012.
If agents' clients wish to vary the instalment amount or calculate the instalment using the income times rate method, they must lodge the notice by the same date.
Clients' tax return assessments will include a credit for their annual PAYG instalments, regardless of whether they have paid this amount.
If their tax returns are lodged before they pay the annual instalment, they must still pay this liability by the due date.
Agents can view their client's integrated account through the Tax Agent Portal by selecting Your Clients - Client Accounts to work out if they have a PAYG instalment liability.
