Mean is $306,360 and Median is $65,359*.

*Payroll tax is a self-assessment tax. The above figures are based on the 2021-22 assessments for all companies registered for payroll tax regardless of whether they claimed the tax-free threshold. The above mean and median figures reflect that not all companies chose to claim the tax-free threshold; and if a company operates in multiple jurisdictions, then the allowable tax-free threshold is adjusted to be proportional to the total ACT taxable wages compared to total Australia-wide wages.

Information on the calculation of payroll tax, including the tax-free threshold can be found at
