If you're an Australian resident, the first $18,200 you earn is tax-free, this is known as the tax-free threshold. You can claim the tax-free threshold on the TFN declaration you give your employer.
You can choose to claim or not claim the tax-free threshold on the tax file number (TFN) declaration you give to your payer (including Centrelink). If you choose to do so: you will not pay tax where your income is under $18,200. your payer will withhold tax when you earn above $18,200.
If you are an Australian resident for tax purposes for a full year, you pay no tax on the first $18,200 of your income. This is called the tax-free threshold.
When an employee offers a bonus payment that is below $300, the bonus can be considered a gift, thus incurring an exemption from fringe benefit tax (FBT). As a result, the bonus is not required to be recorded on the employee's yearly PAYG payment summary, so tax does not have to be withheld.
One of the most effective ways to reduce taxes on a bonus is to reduce your gross income with a contribution to a tax-deferred retirement account. This could be either a 401(k) or an individual retirement account (IRA).
Bonuses and commissions paid or payable to an employee are defined as wages, and are therefore liable for payroll tax. These payments are either included in the employee's gross wages or shown separately on the employee's PAYG withholding statement.

Australia has a progressive tax system, which means that the higher your income, the more tax you pay. You can earn up to $18,200 in a financial year and not pay tax. This is known as the tax-free threshold and after which, the tax rates kick in.
