Single Touch Payroll

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is changing the way employers report their tax and super information to the ATO.  If you have payroll software, all you'll need to do is update it once it has been 'single touch payroll' enabled.

You will then begin reporting the following:

  • payments to employees such as salary and wages
  • pay as you go (PAYG) withholding
  • super information

The way you pay your employees won't change however you must send the ATO the information at the same time as you pay your employees.  STP has already started and will be mandatory for all employers from 1 July 2019.
