We pay shearers and shed hands etc and sometimes they are paid meal allowances when i don't cook for them. Normal pay this is fine and it is not taxed and is included in PAYG pymt summary as allowance. We now have shearers with ABNs who we pay by invoice for their services. They have meal allowances on their invoices when applicable, they make sure they are not incl of GST, but do we need to provide a payg pymt summary just for the meal allowance part? As we don't need to for their shearing as it is GST tax invoice rather than pay with PAYG withheld. Please help!

Hi @KristyCastle,

 

Thanks for your question!

 

Generally speaking, if the payee does not need to be reported on the PAYG Withholding labels on your BAS, then they will not require a payment summary for any payments that you have made to them.

 

Hope this helps,
