New financial year obligations for employers

With the start of the new financial year, employers should check their reporting obligations, along with any upcoming key dates, including for:

PAYG withholding — From 1 July, the individual income tax rate thresholds and tax tables will change, which will impact their PAYG withholding for the 2025 tax year;
SG rate change — From 1 July, the SG rate will increase to 11.5%. Employers must pay their SG contributions by 28 July in full, on time and to the right fund; and
Single touch payroll (‘STP’) reporting — Employers should remember to make STP finalisation declarations by 14 July for all employees the employer has paid during the financial year, and also check their employees’ year-to-date amounts are correct.
