  • No-cost and low-cost solutions for Single Touch Payroll

    There are a range of no-cost and low-cost Single Touch Payroll (STP) solutions available for micro employers.

    These no-cost or low-cost solutions have been developed for micro employers (those with one to four employees) who need to report through STP but do not currently have STP-ready software. These solutions may include mobile apps, simple reporting solutions and portals.

    Software providers have put forward product proposals in response to a market request. The solutions must:

    • be affordable (costing less than $10 per month)
    • take only minutes to complete each pay period
    • not require the employer to maintain the software.

    The solutions on this register supplement the wide range of STP solutions already available from software developers. You need to choose a solution that is right for you and your business based on your own circumstances. View the STP product registerExternal Link to see the full range of products that offer varying degrees of functionality, support, and pricing models.

    If you begin reporting and find the product you chose doesn’t fit your business needs, you may change to another solution at any time (subject to contractual arrangements). For more information see Changing payroll solutions during a financial year.

    While we will take all reasonable care to ensure information provided in this list is accurate, changes in circumstances may occur after the solutions are released. This list does not include all commercial STP-ready software available.

    The list order is randomly generated weekly and does not imply any preference. We do not endorse any of the suppliers listed.
