>> Update: 2013-14 tables are on the way soon. A compilation of tax tables for the 2013-14 year with effect from 1 July 2013 will be updated as released – see: Printed Tax Instalment Tables 2013-14 <<
The required tax instalment deductions from employees’ pays in are set out in tax tables provided by the Tax Office. The tax tables are intended to provide an estimate of the final tax payable when the employee lodges his or her tax return for assessment at the end of the financial year.
The tax instalment rates are usually slightly more than necessary when compared to the actual tax scale. So all things being equal, an employee with nothing else in their tax return, could usually expect a small refund on their tax assessment. It is important that at least sufficient tax is deducted to avoid a nasty shock, i.e. a bill from the tax office when your tax return is assessed.
