When completing your activity statement, remember that your missed income does not contain income that you receive under a voluntary agreement. As a general rule, you do not have to withhold amounts for payments you make to contractors.

This is a good way to help independent entrepreneurs meet their tax obligations. PAYG Payment Statement – Commercial and Personal Services Income (NAT 72769) This payment statement must be used to provide details of the amounts you have withheld from payments made under a voluntary agreement. You do not need to send us a copy of the voluntary agreement, but you and the worker must keep a copy for your registrations for five years after the last payment was made as part of the agreement. The recipient may only charge GST for all goods or services provided under a voluntary agreement if the payer is not entitled to a full GST credit. If the payer is normally entitled to a full GST credit, the recipient cannot charge GST. These forms and instructions for the payment you go (PAYG) voluntary agreements are often used by companies that employ contractors.

For this agreement to be valid, both parties must indicate the type of work to which the payments relate and sign and date the agreement. A voluntary agreement can cover a specific mission or apply to successive agreements between you and the recipient. Payers are required to report annually on all payments made through voluntary agreements with us. We use this information to verify the information contained in the tax return. A voluntary agreement does not change the recipient`s obligation to file an income tax return. All income you earn, including income from voluntary agreements, must be included in your return.
