When you click this link, you’ll land on a page that asks some very basic questions.

The majority of the answers are already pre-filled.

All you need do is change the following.

  • Payee receives payments weekly, fortnightly, monthly
         
  • Gross earnings in whole dollars
         
  • Whether or not there is a HECS or Supplement Loan being repaid

 Then click CALCULATE and voila, there’s the correct amount determined by the ATO.

Assume someone is earning $1,200 per week. The correct tax/PAYG to be withheld will be $275 therby leaving a Net Pay of $925.
