Both State and Federal Governments, impose numerous tax obligations on Australian businesses, with the basis of the tax being the employer/employee relationship. These employment-based taxes include:
- income tax (through the PAYG withholding system)
- fringe benefits tax

- payroll tax
- workers' compensation.
The purpose of this presentation is to review the definitions of 'employee' in respect of the different employment related taxes, discuss the differences between the definitions and approaches for practitioners to deal with such differences.
