NSW Confirms 7-Eleven Complies with Payroll Tax Obligations

UPDATE: 5 October 2016 - Chief Commissioner of Taxation NSW confirms 7-Eleven Stores Pty Ltd is not under investigation for underpayment of payroll tax.

The NSW Office of State Revenue (OSR) has confirmed that 7-Eleven is registered for payroll tax in the state and has met all of its relevant tax commitments.

This confirmation comes after the OSR released a response to a freedom of information request suggesting that 7-Eleven was not registered for payroll tax in NSW – an error that the OSR has now corrected publicly.

7-Eleven has in fact paid almost $9 million in payroll tax in NSW and Victoria over the past three years.

Moreover, it was 7-Eleven that proactively approached the Victorian SRO in October last year, to seek their advice on whether there were any state tax implications arising out of our wage repayment program.  7-Eleven has therefore been working with the Victorian SRO, who is also acting on behalf of the other states, on this issue for nearly 12 months. These discussions are well advanced.

7-Eleven has been proactive, transparent and compliant in respect of its payroll and other tax obligations. 

Any accusation that the company avoids its tax obligations is appalling, disgraceful and untrue.
