Payroll Tax Payment Options

RevenueSA has developed an Internet based service called RevNet that allows an easy, flexible and more efficient way for you to do business with RevenueSA. The facility allows you to calculate, lodge and make your payroll tax payments online.

All payments made in RevNet are via an electronic transfer of funds from your nominated bank account. The electronic payment is initiated by a user within RevNet. RevenueSA does not independently access a taxpayer's bank account.

RevNet Payroll Tax Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), Bpay or Cheque

EFT

EFT is a system which allows businesses to make payments electronically.  If you have access to a Third Party/Pay Anyone option through your internet banking facility, you can make payments by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).

If you choose to make payments via this method you are required to register in order to obtain access to the RevNet EFT Facility. Once registered your nominated Administrators will be provided with login details. You must log into RevNet to complete an expected EFT return each month before you are able to obtain an EFT Payment Advice containing the BSB, Account Number and Payment Reference Number.

The Payment Reference Number changes for each return period. You must use the correct Payment Reference Number for the return period when making your payment. If you do not use the correct number, your payment may not be applied as intended and non-payment penalties and bank fees may result. The correct Payment Reference Number for each return period is only provided to you after you submit an expected EFT return on RevNet.

Once an EFT Payment Advice is generated you will be able to use the details to make payment via EFT with your financial institution.

The RevNet Payroll Tax Electronic Funds Transfer facility also allows a Nil return to be lodged if there is no payroll tax liability for a particular month.

There is no need to submit the payment slip for the period if you pay by EFT.
