Find out what income tax rate you need to use

Income tax rates can vary for your organisation, depending on whether you're incorporated or unincorporated.

Your organisation may qualify for an income tax deduction against the first $1,000 of income you earn. Any income you earn over the $1,000 threshold will then be taxed according to the type of organisation you are.

If your organisation is incorporated

If your organisation is registered and incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908, you're taxed at the company tax rate of 30 cents in the dollar (reducing to 28% for the 2012 income year).

If your organisation is unincorporated

If your organisation is unincorporated, you're taxed at the same rate as individuals:

Income thresholds Tax rates for 2009-10 income year Tax rates for 2010-11 income year Tax rates for 2011-12 income year
$0 - $14,000 12.5% 11.5% 10.5%
$14,001 - $48,000 21% 19.25% 17.5%
$48,001 - $70,000 33% 31.5% 30%
$70,001 and higher 38% 35.5% 33%

You can find the income tax rates for all years since 1998 by using the Tax on annual income calculator. The calculator can also work out tax on taxable income for you.
