The Government’s Stimulus Package in response to the Coronavirus
The March 2020 return is now available in PTX Express and is due by Tuesday 7 April 2020.
Payroll tax relief for eligible businesses
As part of the Victorian Government's economic survival package in response to COVID-19, businesses with annual Victorian taxable wages up to $3 million will have their payroll tax for the 2019-20 financial year waived.
This letter from the Premier of Victoria and fact sheet provide more information.
If your business is eligible for the payroll tax refund
Businesses with annual Victorian taxable wages up to $3 million must continue to lodge returns but do not need to make further payments for this financial year, and we will reimburse the payroll tax they have already paid in the 2019-20 financial year.
Follow our step-by-step guide to claim a reimbursement. We will process your claim within days.
