PAYG payment summary annual report with the ATO each year. Your annual report includes all the payments
you made to your employees and the tax which was withheld. Lodging your payment summary annual report
online is the quickest and most secure way to meet your obligation. All you need to lodge your report online through
the ATO Business Portal are: •an Australian business number

for one online at the Australian Business Register at abr.gov.au. You must have payroll software that can create
an annual report file. If you are not sure whether your software is able to generate
an annual report, you need to contact your software provider. Create your file by following your software
