STP Connect

Welcome to STP Connect, your hub for all things Single Touch Payroll.

We created this resource hub to help you get your clients ready for STP. You’ll find great content and tools, along with forums and links below.
They’re all designed to arm you with the information you need to get your clients on board with STP.

We’re ready, you’re ready, let’s get your clients ready

Single Touch Payroll is almost here and Essentials and AccountRight 2018.2 are ready to go!
We’ve worked directly with the ATO to ensure that all organisations are ready to go when it becomes mandatory on 1 July 2018 for businesses with 20 or more employees.

All MYOB’s payroll enabled solutions are now compliant with easy-to-use solutions to make everyone’s transition as smooth as possible.

STP will be a big change for all of us, so let’s make sure your clients are ready.

What is it?

It’s a new, simpler way to report employees’ payroll information to the ATO. It means employers will report salaries and wages, PAYG withholding and super information directly to the ATO via their payroll software, when they pay their employees.

 As a result, businesses won’t need to complete payment summaries at the end of the financial year. Also, employees can access their information at any time through myGov.

 

Let’s get started?

If you process payroll on behalf of your clients, you can set yourself up to report payroll information for their business. Complete the readiness check, connect to the ATO and start reporting. If your client wants to process their own pay run, they'll need to register themselves for STP before starting the pay run.

If your client processes their own payroll, they’ll need to set themselves up for STP. You can help them get ready by making sure that they can register their software ID with the ATO during their setup. They’ll be able to do this through the ATO’s Access Manager (with an AUSkey, or having their ABN connected to their myGov account), or by phoning the ATO. More information will be provided when they onboard.

If your client processes a pay run but hadn’t registered their own business for STP, including having someone from their business notify the ATO that they’re reporting through MYOB, their reports won’t be accepted by the ATO.

Guide your clients the easy way

Your clients should have done an employee headcount on 1 April 2018. If they had 20 or more employees then, STP will be mandatory for them from 1 July. For employers with 19 or less employees, it’s voluntary.

It’s a great opportunity to educate your clients that STP isn’t just about compliance – it’ll make payroll (and their lives) easier! Just like our payroll functionality in AccountRight Live and Essentials. They make processing payroll a breeze – no more group certificates, and the peace of mind that tax obligations are error free.

One of best ways to help them get ready? Send our checklist. It’s in a simple PDF format that you can easily email to them. Alternatively, visit the Marketing Partner Portal and add your own logo to personalise.
