It is 30 June 2017 and there are certain reporting and lodgement requirements that need to be carried out at year-end. If your business pays wages and/or pays contractors, there are a number of reports that need to be issued and/or lodged for the 2017 financial year:
Individual PAYG Payment Summaries (Group Certificates)
Required to be issued by: 14 July 2017
Under pay as you go (PAYG) withholding, you must give each of your employees, workers and other payees a payment summary showing the payments you have made to them and the amounts you withheld from those payments during a financial year.
It is important you provide payment summaries to all your employees even if you were not required to withhold any tax.
