Hey guys,
I am a graphic designer, I work full time for a company and during the year did some extra freelance work on the side. The total earnings for my freelance work was $5000.

I lodged my tax return and have been asked by the tax department to provide a PAYG summary for this work. My question is can I just generate one myself?
I havn’t yet paid tax on this money. I included the details of this in my tax return.


Hi There

When you say freelance work, were you engaged as employee by the business (they deduct PAYG withholding and should issue a payment summary) or were you engaged as a contractor in which case you would have issued them with an invoice with your ABN on it (with or without GST)?
