Avoid making mistakes on PAYG Payment Summaries

Businesses commonly make mistakes when filling out their tax forms. Below is a list of common errors and how to avoid them.

What to do – and not do – when filling out PAYG Payment Summaries

When Do not Do 
Handwriting information anywhere on a PAYG Payment Summary  Write across the boxes  Each letter in a separate box
Write with a coloured pen  Use black pen only
 Write in lowercase  Use uppercase (that is, using only capital letters)
 

Providing information (handwritten or otherwise) on the form

 Write ‘NIL’ or ‘0’ where a particular type of payment is not relevant.  Leave it blank if information is not relevant (you do not have to fill everything in).
 Show amounts in dollars and cents or use a decimal point.   Show amounts in dollars only (round the cents up or down to reach a dollar amount). 
 Show negative amounts (especially when you want to correct a mistake made in earlier years).   Use positive amounts only. There is a separate process for amending forms that were submitted in previous years. 
 Include the amounts paid under a salary sacrifice arrangement as gross payments or gross attributed income.   Show amounts paid under a salary sacrifice arrangement separately in the reportable employer superannuation contributions part of the payment summary. 
 

Salary sacrifice arrangements

 Include the amounts paid under a salary sacrifice arrangement as gross payments or gross attributed income.   Show amounts paid under a salary sacrifice arrangement separately in the reportable employer superannuation contributions part of the payment summary.
