  • Switch to Single Touch Payroll

    13 November 2018

    If you are an employer with 19 or less employees, you should consider switching your reporting to Single Touch Payroll (STP).

    You can use STP to report employee information from your payroll solution directly to us each time you pay your employees, such as:

    • salaries and wages
    • pay as you go withholding
    • super information.

    As a small employer you are not currently required to report through STP, but if you use online or cloud-based payroll software you may be able to start reporting now. You may receive a letter from us about STP, you should talk to your software provider to check if your product is STP-enabled.

    If you don't currently use payroll software, a number of low cost software (at or below $10 per month) is expected to become available next year including:

    • simple payroll software
    • mobile phone apps
    • portals.

    We will publish a list of these options on our website soon.

    Registered tax agents and BAS agents can help you with your STP reporting.
