Single Touch Payroll

What’s Single Touch Payroll (STP):

 STP is a new way for employers to report their employees’ tax and super information to ATO.

This can be done by using payroll or accounting software that offers STP to allow employers send their employees’ tax and super information to ATO each time they run their payroll and pay their employees.

The information is sent to ATO directly from the software or through a third party, such as a sending service provider.

Employers with 20 or more employees

STP reporting started gradually on 1 July 2018 for substantial employers (those with 20 or more employees).

If you have not started reporting through STP, we have information to help you get ready.

Employers with 19 or less employees

Parliament has passed legislation to extend STP reporting to all employers from 1 July 2019. The Treasury Laws Amendment (2018 Measures No. 4) Bill 2018 is yet to receive Royal Assent.
