If you make payments to employees and other payees, you must withhold amounts from their pay and send the withheld amounts to the Australian Tax Office (ATO). This process is called withholding and is done through the pay as you go (PAYG) withholding system.

When you lodge your PAYG withholding payment summary annual report the moment you provide payment summaries to your employees makes it easier for your employees to lodge their tax return online or using paper forms. ATO uses the information you provide to pre-fill employees tax returns. The pre-filling service is available to people who prepare their tax returns online or tax agents.
