The due date for your December 2012 monthly payment has been extended to Monday 14 January 2013.
Payroll tax is imposed on an employer's liable NSW wages minus any threshold entitlement.
An individual employer or a group of related businesses may be liable for payroll tax if the total liable wages throughout Australia, including NSW, exceeds the payroll tax threshold for that year.
