From 1 January 2022, when you report your payroll information via Single Touch Payroll (STP), you'll provide some extra information.
Your software provider will update your STP-enabled software for you. There's nothing you need to do immediately.
We'll give you more information on the reporting requirements later in the year. This will include a detailed guide to step you through any changes.
We're doing this to reduce duplication of information you provide to government. We're also expanding the range of information we share with other government agencies such as Services Australia.
If you don't yet report through STP you should start now.
If you have closely held payees you don't need to start to report through STP for those payees until 1 July 2021, all other employers should be reported through STP now.
Remember, registered tax agents and BAS agents can help you with Single Touch Payroll.
