WA Payroll Tax: COVID-19 Stimulus Package

In response to the COVID-19 issue, the WA Government has announced a stimulus package which includes payroll tax measures:

  • A one-off $17,500 grant to payroll tax paying businesses with payroll $1m-$4m
  • Increasing payroll tax threshold to $1m from 1 July 2020, 6 months earlier than planned.
  • Deferral of 2019/20 payroll tax to 21 July 2020 for employers paying $7.5m or less in Australian taxable wages and have been directly or indirectly impacted by COVID-19

I will post further updates as announcements are released.
