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

    A range of no-cost and low-cost Single Touch Payroll (STP) solutions are being made available from early 2019 in addition to existing commercial STP solutions.

    The 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 to offer these solutions in response to a market request. The solutions are required to be affordable (costing less than $10 per month), take only minutes to complete each pay period and 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 that offer varying degrees of functionality, support, and pricing models. You need to choose a solution that is right for you and your business based on your own circumstances. We consulted with the payroll software community to bring together a full STP product registerExternal Link.

    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 which may affect the accuracy of this information. This list does not include all commercial STP-ready software available.

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