Payroll Tax Exemption

Notice to Employers

ATEP has some positive news for employers who are subject to payroll tax on apprenticeship/traineeship wages.

The Victorian Government has endorsed payroll tax exemption on the wages of apprentices and trainees employed by approved “not for profit” Group Training Organisations from 1st January 2005.

This means:

  • Any Apprentice or Trainee you employ through ATEP does not incur payroll tax charges @ 5.25% of employee gross wages and superannuation payments like most businesses.
  • A significant tax saving to your business – plus all the additional support traditionally enjoyed by ATEP clients!
  • Freeing up your time to focus on what you do best – manage your business!

Should you require any further information please telephone one of our professional recruitment staff on 9583 9444 or e-mail: info@atep.org.au.
