  • STP exemption extended for employers with Withholder Payer Numbers

    NFPs that don't require an Australian business number (ABN) but have employees, or are required to withhold an amount from a payment to a supplier, will need to have a withholding payer number (WPN). This may include organisations such as school canteens or small sporting clubs.

    Generally, all employers need to report using Single Touch Payroll (STP). However, the exemption for employers with a WPN reporting using STP has been extended to the 2020-21 financial year.

    If you decide to make use of this exemption, you don't need to apply or advise us. You should keep records that support your decision.

    If you are already reporting quarterly through STP your quarterly reports are due at the same time as your activity statement.

    We will conduct additional consultation this year to determine the best way for WPN holders to report through STP.
