Transcript

Businesses with annual Victorian taxable wages up to $3 million will have their payroll tax for the 2019-20 financial year waived.

Eligible businesses can claim a reimbursement of payroll tax already paid in the 2019-20 financial year via PTX Express.

Enter your username and password at the login screen to enter PTX Express.

Click on ‘Apply for a refund’ in the menu on the left hand side of the screen, and then select “apply for refund.”

Enter the amount of payroll tax you have already paid in the 2019-20 financial year. If you don’t have this number handy, just enter $1 and we'll do the calculation for you.

Select 'amendment to liability' from the 'Refund reason' drop down menu.

Enter the liability start and end dates. The payroll tax relief is for the 2019-20 financial year, so enter:

1 July 2019 as the liability start date, and

30 June 2020 as the liability end date.

In the 'Reason for request of refund' text field, enter COVID-19 reimbursement.

You don't need to provide any further information unless you are claiming a reimbursement for a scheduled group, in which case you must attach a spreadsheet with the total payroll tax paid by each group member between 1 July 2019 and 29 February 2020.

You will be presented with two questions

Are there any other taxes or duties owing to or in dispute with the SRO?

Has the refund claim been charged to or recovered from another person or organisation?

Answer 'no' to both.

Then select 'Next'.

Select 'electronic funds transfer' and enter the details of the account you want the reimbursement paid into. We are using electronic funds transfer so we can make reimbursements directly and quickly into your account. If you cannot accept this type of payment, please call us on 13 21 61.

This section also asks for a 'facsimile for remittance'. This refers to your fax number. If you don’t have a fax number, just enter ten zeros.

Enter the details of the person we should contact if we have any questions. If this is a representative, such as an accountant or solicitor, let us know in the 'Relationship of contact to taxpayer' field.

Select 'Submit' to complete your claim.
