Single Touch Payroll will change the way you report your tax and super

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a new way for employers to report tax and super information to the ATO. It starts from 1 July 2019 for employers with 19 or less employees.

You'll report the following information through an STP ready solution - such as payroll software:

  • payments to employees such as salaries and wages

  • pay as you go (PAYG) withholding

  • super information.


The way you pay your employees won't change, however you will be sending us this information each time you pay them.

Start reporting any time from 1 July to 30 September 2019. If you can’t start reporting by this time, you'll need to apply for a later start date. An online tool to help you do this will be available on our website in April.
