Payment Summaries - Amended (individual employee)


How do I Print (Export or Lodge) an individual Payment Summary?

Detailed Description

PAYG Payment Summaries: 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.

You can't simply change the information on a PAYG (pay as you go) withholding payment summary after you have given it to the payee or provided your PAYG payment summary annual report to the ATO. 

  • If your employee loses their payment summary, don't issue a new one. Give them a signed photocopy of your own copy showing all the details from the lost payment summary.
  • If you find a mistake in the tax file number, dollar amount or payment type or code after you've given the payment summary to the employee or ATO, prepare a new payment summary.

Note: Both Payee (employee) and the ATO require the amended summary.
