NEW TAX TABLES – 1st October 2016

The Australian Government has increased the 32.5% tax threshold from $37,001 - $80,000 to $37,001 - $87,000. This affects employees who earn over $80,000.

The new tax tables are effective from 1 October 2016. You don’t need to make any other adjustments or refunds as the Australian Tax Office (ATO) will refund any over-payment of tax when your employees (and payees) lodge their 2016-17 income tax return.
