  • STP authority to lodge

    You have told us that the requirement to have a written declaration each time you lodge a STP pay event for your client was impractical. This is due to the need to submit STP pay events every pay day for your clients, which could be weekly, fortnightly or monthly – depending on your payroll frequency.

    We have been working with your professional associations and now have another solution to meet your needs.

    For STP only you may be eligible to have a signed annual STP engagement authority from your client. This option gives you the same ability to confidently make the relevant declarations at the time of lodging the STP pay event, as the normal declaration process.

    This change does not affect any other obligations where you are still required to obtain a signed declaration each time you lodge on behalf of your clients.

    See our Single Touch Payroll authorisations for details on eligibility and requirements for the declaration.
