Single Touch Payroll

The ATO has changed the way businesses report their payroll

The new reporting requirement has now begun. As of 01 July 2018, businesses with 20 or more employees are required to report to the ATO each time you pay your employees.

The information will include your employees’ salaries and wages, allowances, deductions and other payments, pay as you go (PAYG) withholding and superannuation information.

Reporting is conducted from our Single Touch Payroll (STP) enabled payroll software. Each pay run, also known as a “Pay Event”, must be reported every time you pay employees. Businesses must also notify the ATO of any changes to a previous pay run, also known as a “Update Event”.
