The design of e-PayDay Go® allows you to enter the required information logically, once the Payee has returned all the relevant ATO and Employer documents. Without this information, you could enter the Payee incorrectly, causing STP reporting issues. The following Australian Taxation Office (ATO) documents are required to be provided to add a Payee correctly,

You will also need a completed Employment Contract, which is an Agreement between a Payer and Payee detailing the Terms and Conditions of employment.

 

The following forms are optional, unless the Payee is claiming the Seniors and Pensioners Tax Offset or a Medicare Levy Variation,

The answers to the following questions in the relevant ATO Documents determine the Tax Treatment and correct PAYGW calculation e-PayDay Go®.

  1. Questions 1, 8, 9 and 10 in Tax file number declaration (NAT 3092)
  2. Question 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 in Withholding declaration (NAT 3093)
  3. Question 3, 4, 5 and 6 in Withholding declaration – short version for Seniors and Pensioners (NAT 5072)
  4. Questions 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 in the Medicare levy variation declaration (NAT 0929) 

 

Once you have the required information, set up the Payee by choosing one of the following options (1 - 8).
