Corrections

The flowchart in QB 19/03: Provisional tax – impact on employees who receive one-off amounts of income without tax deducted on page 13 is incorrect.

Where the flowchart asks "Is your residual income tax less than $60,000", the arrow to "No use-of-money interest if residual income tax paid by terminal tax date" should be Yes.
