Payroll tax thresholds
The current threshold is $1.1 million in annual Australian taxable wages.
If your annual Australian taxable wages are less than $1.1 million you do not have to pay payroll tax, but you may still need to register for payroll tax.
If you are a member of a group of employers, the $1.1 million threshold is calculated on the members' combined annual Australian taxable wages.
