Single Touch Payroll

Single Touch Payroll (STP) is a new way of reporting tax and super information to the ATO. 

If you are using a solution that offers STP reporting, such as payroll or accounting software, you will send your employees’ tax and super information to the ATO each time you run your payroll and pay your employees. 

The information is sent to the ATO either directly from your software, or through a third party – such as a sending service provider. If you have a software provider, they can tell you more about the type of STP solution they offer. For a list of available STP solutions visit the STP product registerExternal Link.

There will also be a number of options available for employers who do not use payroll software, such as No-cost and low-cost Single Touch Payroll solutions

Options will depend on your number of employees:

  • Large employers with 20 or more employees should now be reporting through STP or have applied to us for a later start date.
  • Small employers with 19 or less employees will need to report through STP from 1 July 2019. This is a gradual transition, and we are providing flexible options.
  • If you’re an employer with four or less employees, you will have additional options.

For more information please go to the ATO website or contact us to discuss your circumstances
