Single Touch Payroll

From 1 July 2019, all employers will need to be reporting to the ATO using Single Touch Payroll. 


Employers will need to report, salary, wages, PAYG withholding and superannuation to the ATO at the time you pay your employees.


The Single Touch Payroll reporting requirements will work hand-in-hand with the new provisions that will deny a deduction to employers for failing to report and pay PAYG withholding for their employee payments (see our separate article here).


What does this mean for my business?


If you employ staff, you will need to make sure you have systems in place to enable you to report your payroll information to the ATO every pay period.  Generally, if you are using up-to-date accounting software, it should be able to comply with the STP requirements without too much additional effort.  However, you should check this with your software provider.
