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
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.
