Period of this reconciliation

Description

The period of the Annual Reconciliation is usually the date range within the financial year from commencement of employment in Australia to 30 June 2019.

Where an employer has changed from a non-group employer to a group employer or vice versa during the year, the Annual Reconciliation Period will be from the date of the latest change to 30 June 2019. Prior periods should be reconciled at the time of change by completing a Part Year Reconciliation.

  • If applicable, also change the Interstate Reconciliation Period to reflect your correct Interstate Employment start and end date.
  • If you started employing interstate and there is no Interstate Reconciliation Period, please select Yes to the question: Did you employ interstate in 2018-2019? Then enter the correct interstate employment dates.
  • Please provide comments in the Additional Information section below detailing the reason for any changes you have made to the Victorian and Interstate Reconciliation Periods.
  • Where an employer has changed status during the year, for example from a non-group employer to a group employer or between payroll tax groups, an Annual Reconciliation needs to be completed for both of the employing periods.
