ATO PAYGW pre-fill is coming to Activity Statements

From July 2023, the ATO will use employers’ Single Touch Payroll (STP) data to pre-fill pay as you go (PAYG) withholding labels W1 and W2 on your ATO Online activity statements.
ATO PAYG withholding pre-fill will be available from the:
  • July activity statement for monthly PAYG withholders
  • September activity statement for quarterly PAYG withholders
ATO PAYG withholding pre-fill will appear when activity statements are made available in ATO online services.

Pre-filled amounts can be changed if needed to match your payroll records if needed.
Any other remaining labels will need to be completed before lodgement.

From 1 July, the road user charge for heavy vehicles is increasing to 28.8 cents per litre.
