Users can only amend a PAYG Payment Summary form in the following circumstances:

Frequently Asked Questions
If the amendment has been reviewed or validated and not lodged, select the trashcan icon beside the status. This will revert the changes back to the pre-amendment status of Lodged. Users can then choose to re-process the amendment if required.
Currently, only one amendment can be processed per form. Where an amended form has been lodged, the amendment can be corrected manually by lodging the paper form to the ATO or via ATO portal.
If the status is Amendment, any changes from the transaction side would not update in the PAYG screen (we do not auto-refresh or manually refresh the PAYG Screen).
Therefore, the users will have to use the Review add adjustment for income stream and review edit for Lump sum amendment changes (to align the values in PAYG dashboard & existing transactions) to update the PAYG screen.
