Tax instalment tables linked below are current for both the 2019-20 and 2020-21 financial years except for forms associated with HECS/HELP etc loans (forms NAT 2173, NAT 2185, NAT 2186 and NAT 3539) which were separately updated in June 2020 and are linked in the table below.
These tables are for use by employers to calculate the amount of tax to be withheld from payments to individual taxpayers.
There were no changes to the tax scale for 2019-20 and therefore most deduction schedules applicable in the previous year continue to apply. Changes to the Low and Middle Income Tax Offsets took effect in 2019-20 which affect tax payable on assessment but do not alter the basic scale and the withholding rates schedules were not adjusted.
From 1 July 2020 there are no changes to tax rates or income thresholds for 2020–21 income year. Therefore, the Statement of formulas (NAT 1004) and regular tax tables that applied from 1 July 2018 continue to apply.
For 2020-21 the education support loans withholding (HECS/HELP etc) tax tables have been updated to reflect annual indexation adjustments to the repayment income thresholds. The links to those amended tables are included below.
