Tax effect – overpayment and recovery

Guidance

Example: A member is advised that she was overpaid $2,000 in the previous financial year, including an amount of PAYG Withholding of $600. The member must forego gross salary of $2,000 in the current financial year.

If a member repays their overpaid salary amount by instalments, a loan fringe benefit may arise, depending on the circumstances.
