  • Information for employees

    If your employer reports to us through Single Touch Payroll, you will be able to see more up-to-date tax and super information in ATO Online Services through myGovExternal Link after 1 July 2018.

    MyGov is a fast, simple way to access government services online.

    When you link your myGov account to the ATO, you can manage your tax and super in one place.

    Single Touch Payroll means your employer is able to report to the ATO when they pay you. The information is sent to us directly from their payroll solution.

    It may take some time before you see all the information that will be available. Only employers with 20 or more employees are required to start reporting through Single Touch Payroll from 1 July 2018 (unless your employer has an exemption from Single Touch Payroll reporting).

    The Australian Government has announced it will expand Single Touch Payroll to include employers with 19 or less employees from 1 July 2019. This will be subject to legislation being passed in parliament.

    You will be able to see your year-to-date pay, the tax that has been withheld from your pay as well as the super contributions your employer is liable to make for your benefit throughout the year.

    When you start a new job, you may have the option to electronically complete a pre-filled tax file number declaration and superannuation standard choice form using our online services.

    You can use our online services any time to access a range of tax and super services, lodge your tax return and keep track of your super.

    Scenarios for employees

    I want to see the tax and super information my employer has reported

    You will need a myGov account linked to ATO online services. If you already have one, you will be able to see your year-to-date information after your employer starts reporting through Single Touch Payroll. You will not be able to see this information until your employer starts reporting through Single Touch Payroll. If you don't have a myGov account, it's easy to set one up.

    My employer said they will no longer have to provide me with a payment summary

    If your employer reports your tax and super information to us through Single Touch Payroll, they will not have to provide you with a payment summary. We will make this information available to you through myGov.

    If your employer does not yet report your information through Single Touch Payroll, they will need to provide you with a payment summary.
