PAYG income instalment estimates

When you select F4 a formal estimate of the individual's tax liability for the current and subsequent year is prepared. You can Preview or Print this estimate.

Additionally, you can prepare a PAYG income instalment worksheet by selecting Preparation > Schedule > xPG - PAYGI (instalment estimate) for an audit trail of how we arrived at the result.

If the current year return has been completed you can pre-fill the worksheet with those values. If not lodged or the ATO has not yet issued the first quarterly instalment notice, you can use the values from either of the two immediate prior years. However, you must use the values from most recently lodged of those two prior year returns.

You can also manually key values or alter pre-filled values where that value is editable. This is helpful for calculating What-if scenarios.

You have a choice of two What-if PAYGI Instalment estimates:

Open either of these worksheets from Preparation > Schedule.

The default is to calculate using the current year rates and thresholds. For returns not yet lodged for your client, you can elect to have tax calculated using values from one of the two immediate prior year returns.
