Work out your tax rate

You can:

  • use the standard schedular payment tax rate by following the flow chart in the form
  • apply for a tailored tax rate, or
  • choose your own rate. 

If you choose your own rate it must be at least 10%. If you are a non-resident on a temporary work or entry visa it must be at least 15%.

You can use our tax rate estimation tool to help work out your own tax rate for schedular payments.
