Employment agents and client declarations
In more payroll tax ruling news, Revenue Ruling PTA-026v2 ceased as of 16 July 2019 because we have changed our position in relation to refunds where an employment agent obtains a retrospective declaration from an exempt client.
We are preparing a replacement ruling in consultation with other states and territories. In the meantime, our website has information about the declaration required from employment agents' clients to enable the employment agent to claim a payroll tax exemption.
